Working Papers from Notre-Dame de la Paix, Sciences Economiques et Sociales
The paper analyzes theoretically and empirically how a firm level tax calculated on the average wage relative to a pre-set norm may promote employment. The theoretical model generalizes the discussion to the case of a subsidization of the average wage dept under the norm chosen by the government. We assume given labor demand and a monopoly union negotiating wages at the firm level in order to maximize the part of the wage bill exceeding the alternative wage.
