The effects of minimum wages throughout the wage distribution

David Neumark (), Mark Schweitzer and William Wascher

No 9919, Working Papers (Old Series) from Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland

Abstract: Workers initially earning near the minimum wage are adversely affected by minimum wage increases, while, not surprisingly, higher-wage workers are little affected. Although the pay of low-wage workers increases, their hours and employment decline, and the combined effect of these changes is a decline in earned income.
