Avaliamos a efetividade da política de salário mínimo nacional nos segmentos formais e informais do mercado de trabalho brasileiro. A nossa técnica consiste em mapear soluções de canto produzidas pela política de salário mínimo que são posteriormente utilizados como mecanismo de focalização na simulação de limites superiores dos efeitos de reajustes do salário mínimo sobre medidas de pobreza no Brasil. Destacamos dois “efeitos informais” do mínimo: i) a alta porcentagem de trabalhadores sem carteira assinada ganhando exatamente um mínimo, o que potencializa os efeitos aliviadores de pobreza do salário mínimo; e ii) A observação de remunerações que utilizam o salário mínimo, como numerário, em particular no setor formal.
