 Title: The Effect of the Minimum Wage When It Really Bites: A Reexamination of the Evidence from Puerto Rico Authors: Krueger, Alan B. Keywords: workplaceeducation Issue Date: 1-May-1994 Citation: In Solomon Polachek (ed.) Research in Labor Economics, Vol. 14, (Greenwich, CT:JAI Press, 1995) Series/Report no.: Working Papers (Princeton University. Industrial Relations Section) ; 330 Abstract: This paper reinvestigates the evidence on the impact of the minimum wage on employment in Puerto Rico. The strongest evidence that the minimum wage had a negative effect on employment comes from an aggregate time series analysis. The weakest evidence comes from cross-industry analyses. The main finding of the paper, however, is that the statistical evidence of a negative employment effect of the minimum wage in Puerto Rico is surprisingly fragile.
