We conduct simulations showing that commonly-used specifications in this literature, especially those that Cited by: Economists generally characterize full employment as a time when the unemployment rate is percent or lower and when the countrys capacity utilization rate is 85 percent or higher.
Major determinants on the effect to wages on long-run aggregate. The reduction in the minimum wage has spill-over effects on the entire distribution, affecting upper-tail inequality.
Through a calibration exercise, I find that a 30 percent reduction in the real value of the minimum wage, as in the early s, accounts for 15 percent of the subsequent rise in the skill premium, percent of the increase.
In a study, we simulated the effects of a minimum wage increase in Illinois using payroll and population data, and predicted that the increase would not trigger widespread job loss. Data are now available to examine these effects empirically.
