La revalorisation automatique du SMIC
[Automatic indexation rules of the French minimum wage (SMIC)]
Contrary to most European countries, indexation rules of the French minimum wage are very precise. However, three possible rules are consistent with the texts, which diverge in particular in periods of deflation or of negative growth of real wages. The alternative interpretations can have a large impact on the dynamics of the minimum wage, on the dynamics of real wages compared to productivity and on the bottom of the wage distribution. This note examine the three rules and recommand the optimal one, which appear to be most robust to alternative scenarios of inflation and deflation.
