Summary

Using 18 waves of the British Household Panel Study, this paper examines state-dependence and stepping stone effects of low pay. The results show that both state-dependence and stepping stone effects of low pay are present. However, there is no evidence to support a low-pay no-pay cycle. The introduction of the national minimum wage does not appear to have affected state-dependence and stepping stone effects of low pay.
