Mindestlöhne: Manna oder Teufelszeug?


"The low wage sector is becoming increasingly important in Germany and is continuing to grow. To keep the social consequences of this within bounds, the call for as-wide-as-possible minimum wage regulations is becoming louder and louder in the political sphere. However minimum wages are not uncontroversial. This article examines, on the basis of the available research findings, whether and under what circumstances minimum wages benefit or harm the labour market." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
