GROISMAN, Fernando. Spillover effects of minimum wage in Argentina. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2016, vol.35, n.68, pp.457-474. ISSN 0121-4772.

This paper examines whether changes in the Argentinean minimum wage in recent years generated spillover effects on wages above the minimum. The analysis looks at the individual wage changes of those initially in a specified interval above the new legal minimum wage. The methodological approach is based on a differencein- differences estimator through ordinary least squares applied to panel data from the Permanent Household Survey (PHS-Indec). Our results confirm the existence of these effects in those segments of workers with wages moderately above the legal minimum.

Keywords : Minimum wage; wage structure; labour market; spillover effects.
