Warum Mindestlöhne die Beschäftigung nicht reduzieren müssen: Ein Literaturüberblick

    (Department of Economics, Vienna University of Economics & B.A.)

In diesem Beitrag werden Beschäftigungswirkungen von Mindestlöhnen im neoklassischen Grundmodell und in mehreren, ebenfalls auf Grundgedanken der Neoklassik basierenden, Alternativmodellen diskutiert. Einerseits werden komparativ statische und andererseits dynamische Ansätze dargestellt, in deren Rahmen Mindestlöhne entweder nicht zu einem Rückgang der Beschäftigung führen müssen, oder sogar positive Beschäftigungswirkungen möglich sind. In Märkten, auf denen Marktversagen in unterschiedlichster Form vorherrscht, können Mindestlöhne - sofern sie moderat ausfallen - diesem entgegenwirken.
