Training, minimum wages and the earnings distribution

15 Oct 2006
Description

The evidence for Britain shows that minimum wages are associated with a small increase in work-related training for the low paid and have not adversely affected the employment of British workers. The authors therefore suggest that the minimum wage has the potential to reduce wages inequality in the longer-term provided that it continues to be set at a level that does not threaten employment.
