Abstract

In this article, we study the labor-market effect of California's 1988 minimum wage increase in the retail trade industry. Two different approaches to evaluating the minimum wage effects suggest that the textbook economic analysis of minimum wages pertains; employment growth in California's low-wage retail trade sector appears to have been tempered by the minimum wage increase.
