D’un siècle à l’autre : salaire minimum, science économique et débat public aux Etats-Unis, en France et au Royaume-Uni (1890-2015)

Abstract : Abstract : From one century to another: minimum wage, economic science and public debates in the United-States, France and the United-Kingdom (1890-2015) The article focuses on the history of minimum wage debates since the end of the XIXth century the United-States, France and the United-Kingdom (and its Commonwealth), focusing on their empirical and theoretical contents as well as on their methodological and epistemological stakes. The analysis also relies on an historical sociology of science, taking into account the relations and interactions of the academic field with three other fields: the political field, the administrative field, and the field of the actors from civil society and the economic and social world. Three key periods are distinguished: around World War I, the period from the 1940s to the 1980s, and the current period starting in the mid-1990s.
