Abstract

This paper reinvestigates the evidence on the impact of the minimum wage on
employment in Puerto Rico. The strongest evidence that the minimum wage had a negative
effect on employment comes from an aggregate time series analysis. The weakest evidence
comes from cross-industry analyses. The main finding of the paper, however, is that the
statistical evidence of a negative employment effect of the minimum wage in Puerto Rico is
surprisingly fragile.
