EALE Labour Economics prize

Prize winner 2012


The editors of Labour Economics are pleased to announce the year 2013 winner of the 7th "EALE Labour Economics Prize" for the best paper published in Labour Economics during 2012:

The effect of the minimum wage for tipped workers on firm strategy, employees and social welfare
Labour Economics, Volume 19, Issue 5, October 2012, Pages 748-755
Ofer H. Azar

The paper has been selected by the editors as the 2013 winner of the annual "EALE Labour Economics Prize" for the best paper published in 2012. The panel was impressed by the well-constructed theoretical model that addressed a rather special, but under researched issue. The award underlines our commitment to publish theoretical work that has a strong focus on how labour markets work - and follows on from awards in the previous two years that were natural experimental and structural empirical papers. Labour Economics welcomes excellent research across the board.

The prize committee comprises of the editors of the journal.
