Definition: Economy Of High Wages



Full Definition of Economy Of High Wages


The economy of high wages is the concept that higher wages will directly lead to higher productivity.

The theory suggests that wages are positively associated with the marginal product or productivity of the worker.

The theory should be subject to the law of diminishing returns. When the salary of a low wage earner is increased, they should be able to improve their nutrition levels, gain additional education and training, and experience higher confidence levels.
