Subgame perfect equilibria of the two-stage location-wage game are studied under laissez-faire and under a minimum wage regime. Up to a restriction for the existence of pure strategy equilibria, the imposition of a minimum wage is always welfare-improving because of its effect on non-wage job characteristics.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Kaas, Leo</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2010</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-07-14T08:20:59Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Madden, Paul</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
