  1. *** p <0.01, ** p <0.05, * p <0.1. Standard errors are in parentheses. V1 measures the gap between an individual’s wage the minimum wage, while V2 is the squared gap which gives more weight to wages at the bottom of the distribution. The minimum wage used to construct both measures is the same for both the treatment and comparison groups
