Title: Earnings and Employment: The Effects of the Living Wage Ordinance in Santa Fe, New Mexico
Author: Potter, Nicholas
Subject(s): Living wage ordinances
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Minimum wage
Employment
Wages
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Difference-in-differences method
Abstract: In this analysis, individual employee’s quarterly wage earnings records were used to examine both how quarterly earnings and the number of people employed by Santa Fe businesses with 25 or more employees change in response to the living wage ordinance. Using the difference-in-differences analysis, the results showed that overall quarterly earnings levels have increased after the living wage ordinance. Except for the construction sector, both employment and employee earnings have shown stronger growth for large Santa Fe businesses than for small Santa Fe businesses or large Albuquerque businesses.
