    En el presente trabajo se estudia el impacto distributivo del aumento del salario mínimo evidenciado en Argentina durante el período 2003 – 2013. Utilizando información de la Encuesta Permanente de Hogares Continua se estima, mediante el método propuesto por Lee (1999), el efecto casual del salario mínimo sobre la distribución salarial de los asalariados a tiempo completo. Los resultados sugieren un efecto igualador del aumento del salario mínimo real para el total de asalariados y para los asalariados formales, no así para los asalariados no registrados. Al descomponer la caída observada de la desigualdad salarial entre la variación aportada por el aumento del salario mínimo real y aquella relacionada con otros factores, el aumento del valor del salario mínimo explica una disminución de las brechas salariales, en promedio, de 0.5 puntos porcentuales por año, para los trabajadores formales, y de 0.3 puntos porcentuales para el total de asalariados.
