It can also be shown that dwS /d χ > 0 and dS/d χ < 0, so that an increase in fixed employment costs results in a rise in the wage and a reduction in employment. By reducing employment, the firm can counteract an increase in total labor costs stemming from higher employment costs.

However, despite an erosion in its real value, the minimum wage measured in proportion to the average unskilled labor wage – a more relevant indicator of the effect of minimum wages on the labor market – may not change to a significant degree. Bell (1997), for instance, estimated the impact of minimum wages on the demand for skilled and unskilled labor in the formal manufacturing sector in Mexico and Colombia. At the end of the 1980s, the minimum wage stood at just 31 percent of the average unskilled manufacturing wage in Mexico, and roughly 53 percent of the average unskilled AGENOR: “CHAP01” — 2006/11/9 — 12:35 — PAGE 14 — #7 The Analytics of Segmented Labor Markets 15 wage in Colombia.

Unions may also extract rents that are distributed to members through higher wages by either reducing turnover and negotiation costs. As noted by Booth and Chatterji (1998), for instance, unions can also have an indirect effect on the wage premium if they promote training. Indeed, Blunch and Verner (2004) found evidence of a union premium related to training in Ghana. In general, however, given the paucity of reliable panel data sets in developing countries, it is difficult to test rigorously these different effects – particularly the view that union workers may be significantly more productive than nonunion workers.
