Assume Workers Comp awards $X to workers not working because of injury. $X is set to equal the workers previous wages. Once workers return to work, the award payments stop. Suppose the government were to implement a new program in which recipients were awarded $0.5X, but were allowed to work; in addition, those who worked would earn a wage subsidy of 20 percent of their wages per hour worked, in addition to their wages. What are the changes in work incentives associated with this change in the law??
