The living New Deal : the unsung benefits of the New Deal for the United States and California by Richard Walker( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... when we speak of a "Living New Deal" we mean two things. The first is recovery of the lost legacy of New Deal programs -- a kind of archeological dig into America's past where so much remains buried from public view. It is testimony to a kind of collective blindness, for the remains of the New Deal are ubiquitous and in plain sight, but are mostly unseen and unappreciated. They live on in tens of thousands of public works still standing, still functioning, and still providing benefits to unwitting millions of Americans over generations. And they live on in public programs such as Social Security and mortgage guarantees that have changed the face of economy, society, and the landscape ... The second legacy of the New Deal is the 'civil' in that lost civilization. The New Deal era represents, more than anything else -- more than economic recovery and long-term investment -- the ideals of civil society, collective governance, and social well-being that animated an era ... The New Deal and public works had beneficial consequences for the United States that have been ignored for too long. We review the short-term and long-term effects in the two sections to follow. After that, we turn to California, to reinforce the case for the benefits of New Deal programs on the country's most populous and dynamic state."--Page 2-3
Minimum wage effects across state borders : estimates using contiguous counties by Arindrajit Dube( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We use policy discontinuities at state borders to identify the effects of minimum wages on earnings and employment in restaurants and other low-wage sectors. Our approach generalizes the case study method by considering all local differences in minimum wage policies between 1990 and 2006. We compare all contiguous county pairs in the U.S. that straddle a state border and find no adverse employment effects. We show that traditional approaches that do not account for local economic conditions tend to produce spurious negative effects due to spatial heterogeneities in employment trends that are unrelated to minimum wage policies. Our findings are robust to allowing for long term effects of minimum wage changes
The impact of the Affordable Care Act on new jobs by Joanne Spetz( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report explores entry-level and low-skill job opportunities that will expand due to ACA implementation. The analyses draw from estimates of future health worker demand published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and a unique analysis of the effect of the ACA on job growth developed from a microsimulation model (Frogner & Spetz, 2013). This report discusses historic and projected growth rates for entry-level health care careers, defined as those that require a high school degree or lower, including certificate training. We also present case studies that highlight effective education programs that prepare workers for new and changing jobs under the ACA
Minimum wage shocks, employment flows and labor market frictions by Arindrajit Dube( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We provide the first estimates of the effects of minimum wages on employment flows in the U.S. labor market, identifying the impact using policy discontinuities at state borders. We find that minimum wages have a sizable negative effect on employment flows but not stocks: separations and accessions fall among affected workers. We interpret our findings using a job-ladder model, in which minimum wage increases can reduce job-to-job transitions. We find that a standard calibration of the model generates predicted relative magnitudes of the employment stock and flow elasticities that are very close to our reduced-form estimates
