This authoritative analysis of one of the oldest and best known state minimum wage laws discusses the law's extent of coverage, the criteria employed by wage boards in reaching their decisions, the important role of supplementary provisions in wage orders, and the reasons for the high proportion of unanimous decisions by the tripartite boards. Available data and tentative conclusions on the economic effects of the law are also presented, together with an indication of the research which needs to be done in this area. The authors question whether New York would now gain anything from a change to a statutory minimum wage law, but they point out why some other states might benefit from such a change.
