Detecting Effects of Living Wage Laws

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Neumark, David, and A. Adams. 2003. "Detecting Effects of Living Wage Laws." Industrial Relations, 42(4): 531-564.

We estimate the effects of living wage laws on wages of low-wage workers, focusing on the timing of policy, spurious associations, and the type of living wage law passed in a city. Our estimates point to sizable positive wage effects in cities with broad living wage laws that cover employers receiving business assistance from the city. We also explore disemployment effects of living wage laws and find evidence consistent with tradeoffs between wages and employment.
