"Beyond covering previously sparse treatments of issues such as effects on prices, inflation, profits, and inequality, Neumark and Wascher demonstrate the overwhelming weight and detrimental effects of minimum wages on low-skilled workers. The volume is a must for anyone interested in research on labor markets."--Daniel S. Hamermesh, Centennial Professor of Economics, University of Texas at Austin -- Daniel Hamermesh "Over the past 20 years, the focus of research on the minimum wage has changed from federal to state minimum wages as the key policy variable, and from effects on teen employment to a broader range of outcomes. David Neumark and William Wascher have been important contributors to these innovations. Minimum Wages combines a very accessible summary of their research with helpful discussions of others' work."--Charles Brown, Professor of Economics, University of Michigan -- Charles Brown "Beyond covering previously sparsely treated issues such as effects on prices, inflation, profits, and inequality, Neumark and Wascher demonstrate the overwhelming weight of careful U.S. evidence and other evidence showing the detrimental effects of minimum wages on low-skilled workers.
