dc.description.abstractThis paper puts together evidence for the wages, employment and price effects of theminimum wage. This overall picture will help to understand the small employment effectsprevalent in the literature in the light of price effects. The data used is an under-exploredmonthly Brazilian household survey from 1982 to 2000, similar to the US CPS. As theinternational literature on the minimum wage is scanty on non-US empirical evidence, inparticular on developing countries, this paper will also help to extend the currentunderstanding on the effects of the minimum wage in developing countries. This is crucial ifthe minimum wage is to be used as a policy to help poor people in poor countries.en_US
