Fellowships and Awards

Wage formation and costs of employment - 16 September 2016

This conference will seek to move beyond calculations of real wages and explore how piece rates, day rates, and other forms of bargain were formed around labour exchange costs in the early modern and nineteenth century world. Discussion will focus on two questions:

How were payment systems and wages formed by the costs of matching, negotiation, and enforcement of contracts in the labour market?

To what extent did the systems and solutions adopted meet the needs of employers and workers?
