dc.description.abstractThe apparent significant changes in Puerto Rico’s economy, due to minimum wage increases from the years 2007 through 2009, it’s pivotal to understand the impact that these years had in the workforce. These changes have not been positive to the companies with the small and mid-corporations. Several small and mid- corporations that belong to the “Centro Unido de Detallistas” and are located in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico participated in this study to provide and identify payroll increase, amount of layoffs and reduction in the workforce during the three years of the increase in the federal minimum wage. The findings considered the two highest impacts with the increase of the federal minimum wage are: the payroll increase substantially therefore expenses across all industries that belong to the “Centro Unido de Detallistas”, and that the amount of layoffs and reduction of the workforce were minimal.
dc.description.abstractLos aparentes cambios en la economía de Puerto Rico dado al aumento en el salario mínimo durante los años 2007 al 2009 es importante conocer el impacto que los mismos han tenido en la fuerza laboral poco homogénea. La experiencia de las pequeñas y medianas empresas (PYMES) durante estos cambios no ha sido una muy positiva. Varias PYMES que pertenecen al Centro Unido de Detallistas y están ubicadas en el pueblo de Mayagüez participaron en este estudio para identificar los aumentos en el gasto de nómina, la cantidad de cesantías y la reducción en la jornada laboral durante los tres años de aumento en el salario mínimo federal. Entre los hallazgos de mayor impacto, es evidente que el renglón de nómina aumentó sustancialmente y por ende los gastos operacionales para las PYMES mientras que la cantidad de cesantías y la reducción en la jornada laboral fue mínima.
