Workshop on minimum wages: Lessons from recent experiences and European perspectives

Program

Inscription: catherine.bluchetin@ens.fr

Since the Great Recession, France has frozen its national minimum wage. By contrast, some OECD countries have significantly raised their minimum wages at the national or local levels; Germany has even introduced a Mindestlohn in 2015. This workshop will draw, for academic and non-academic audiences, the main lessons from these significant changes, and discuss the perspectives of a European minimum wage.
