The Employment Effect of the Minimum Wage: An Empirical Analysis From Turkey

Ekonomi-tek - International Economics Journal, 2015, vol. 4, issue 1, 49-68

Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between the minimum wage and employment in Turkey for the years 2004 -14. We investigate whether the national minimum wage has affected the employment rates of workers aged 15-29 by taking regional disparities into account. Our results do not suggest any dis-employment effect of the minimum wage. However, a correlation between the minimum wage and the informal employment rate is confirmed.
