Concerns about the minimum wage in nursing care

Article in the FAZ

On the 20th of October 2017, an article concerning the minimum care wage was published in the German newspaper FAZ with the title "Concerns about the foreclosure of the care market" (p. 16). In the section "Order of the Economy", Steffen J. Roth from the Institute for Economic Policy at the University of Cologne (IWP) discusses the effects of the higher minimum wage in the nursing care industry as well as the regulatory economic assessment of the nursing commission responsible for determining the minimum working conditions in this sector.

The contribution is based on the Otto Wolff Discussion Paper 1/2017.
