Low paid employment is a key issue for labour market policy. The essays in this book, focusing on European countries, provide new empirical evidence regarding the impact of minimum wages on employment, earnings mobility among low paid workers, job satisfaction across the earnings distribution, unemployment traps, the demand for low skilled workers, and the existence of monopsonistic competition.
