The Minimum Wage and the Employment of Youth Evidence from the NLSY

Janet Currie () and Bruce Fallick ()

Journal of Human Resources, 1996, vol. 31, issue 2, 404-428

Abstract: Using panel data on individuals from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, we find that employed individuals who were affected by the increases in the federal minimum wage in 1979 and 1980 were about 3 percent less likely to be employed a year later, even after accounting for the fact that workers employed at the minimum wage may differ from their peers in unobserved ways.
