Minimum Wage Introduction and Employment: Evidence from South Korea

Baek, Jisun / Park, WooRam

Abstract

This paper examines the effect of the introduction of the national minimum wage on plant-level employment in South Korea. We show that the minimum wage introduction increased the average remuneration for employees, but has no discernible effect on plant-level employment.
