When Mandates Work: Raising Labor Standards at the Local Level

February 4, 2014

when mandates workFrom the publisher:

Starting in the 1990s, San Francisco launched a series of bold but relatively unknown public policy experiments to improve wages and benefits for thousands of local workers. Since then, scholars have documented the effects of those policies on compensation, productivity, job creation, and health coverage. Opponents predicted a range of negative impacts, but the evidence tells a decidedly different tale. This book brings together that evidence for the first time, reviews it as a whole, and considers its lessons for local, state, and federal policymakers.

When Mandates Work: Raising Labor Standards at the Local Level, edited by Michael Reich, Ken Jacobs, Miranda Dietz. Berkeley : University of California Press, 2014. 235 p. ISBN 9780520278141 (pbk.)
