Abstract: Some sectors of the economy are exposed to and some are sheltered from foreign competition. These sectors are likely to have a different composition of their labour force, notably regarding to the dependency on the minimum wage. If a national incomes policy does not respect these differences, a country can have both unemployment and a surplus on the tradae account.
