505: Annotated Bibliography Instructions
This assignment is the foundation that will be used to undergird the majority of the rest of the assignments in this course. Put forth the time and effort this assignment deserves in order to give yourself a good foundation for this course, as these sources will be used later for your Literature Review.
You will choose 1 specific policy (see below). You will find 5 qualitative research articles (from a peer-reviewed journal) and 5 quantitative articles (from a peer-reviewed journal) on your chosen policy. You will then read these articles and provide a summary for each article in 150–200 words. Arrange each entry to include the following: article citation, article type (qualitative or quantitative), and article summary.
Continue this pattern for the entire assignment. This assignment must be formatted in current Turabian style, thus the first article cited and summarized will be the author with the last name closest to beginning with “A” since Turabian requires that you complete your reference list alphabetically.
The grading rubric provides more specifics for this assignment and each required section.

Policy selected: Minimum Wage
Addison, JT., & Blackburn, ML 1999, Minimum Wages and Poverty. Industrial & Labor Relations Review, 52(3), 393
Qualitative article: the authors of this article employ a reduced-form approach in studying the link between changes in the minimum wage and the levels of employment of the young adults and teens. Both authors are Professors in the Department of Economics at the University of South Carolina. According to Addison and Blackburn (1999), earlier researches on the effects of minimum wages on poverty have revealed that minimum wages actually decrease the rates of poverty, with simulated effects which seem to be rather strong. Different from simulation treatments, the approach employed by Addison and Blackburn (1999) minimizes the need for building a restrictive and unrealistic model to evaluate the effects of minimum wages on poverty. Their findings show that the rates of poverty amongst the groups that are most likely to be affected by minimum wage raises are at least twice over those of prime-age people. There is proof of a poverty-reducing effect of minimum wages for junior high dropouts and teenagers; this proof is obtained from reactions to minimum wages which were raised in the ‘90s. Similarly, a study conducted by of Neumark and Wascher (2002) cited below showed that the minimum wage increases the chances of poor families to escape poverty.
Brown, C., Gilroy, C., & Kohen, A 1982, The Effect of the Minimum Wage on Employment and Unemployment. Journal of Economic Literature, 20, 487-528
Qualitative article. Charles Brown is a researcher at the National Bureau of Economic Research and a professor at the University of Maryland. Curtis Gilroy is a researcher at the U.S. Army Research Institute, and Andrew Cohen is a professor at James Madison University. In this article, they state that the most fundamental minimum wage model on unemployment and employment centers on one competitive labor market with uniform workers whose wage would be lower than the legally defined minimum wage. If the rates of employment would increase, the decrease in employment predicted by the simple demand-supply model can take the form of a lower employment growth rate and not an actual drop in the number of persons employed. A popular exemption to the conclusion that minimum wages would reduce the rate of joblessness is the monopsony case. A minimum wage that is between the original monopsony and the competitive wage would increase the rates of employment. A 10% raise in the minimum wage is approximated to bring about roughly 1%-3% decrease in total employment. This finding is somewhat similar to that of Partridge and Partridge (1999) cited below who found that in increase in minimum wage leads to an increase in the rates of long-term joblessness.
Even, WE., & Macpherson, DA 2003, The Wage and Employment Dynamics of Minimum Wage Workers. Southern Economic Journal, 69(3), 676-690
Qualitative article: William Even is a professor in the Department of Economics at Miami University whilst David Macpherson is a professor in the Department of Economics at Florida State University. In their study, the authors of this article used 20 years of short panel data sets on minimum wage workforce for the purposes of improving the understanding of the employment and wage dynamics of minimum wage workforce in many respects. They constructed 2 samples of minimum wage workforce from the CPS-ORG files from the year 1979 to the year 1999. Additionally, they created a comparison sample that comprises the earnings of employees higher than the minimum wage during the initial year of the panels. The shifts into minimum wage job are from non-employment or from work whose wage was at, higher than, or low...
