This book examines the wages people earn, the jobs they do, and the effect of government labor market policies on wages and employment. The book synthesizes research findings on these topics, using a human capital framework that no other similar book offers. The authors present an integrated evaluation of education subsidies, training programs, gender and race equality programs, unemployment insurance laws, minimum wage legislation, union protection laws, health and safety laws and employment protection laws.
