The effects of the minimum wage in an economy with tax evasion
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Institute for International Economic Studies.
2006 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

A model of the labor market is built where imperfect detection in case of auditing induces underreporting of earnings. The introduction of the minimum wage makes some workers increase compliance, boosting fiscal revenues. A spike at the minimum wage level appears in the distribution of earnings. The model predicts a positive correlation between the size of the spike at the minimum wage level and the size of the informal economy. Empirical evidence supporting this prediction is presented.
