Maximum wage

Maximum wage Definition

a maximum wage is an enforced limit to how much an individual can earn. it is a related concept to the minimum wage, which also aims to preventing the distribution of wealth from becoming overly lopsided.

a maximum wage can be implemented through a direct limit on earnings, or indirectly by scaled taxation whereby the top earners in a society are taxed extremely high percentages of their income. this redistribution of wealth provides more funds for government to assist poorer people (e.g. via welfare). this system has been imposed by some social democratic governments such as that in power in sweden in the 1960s.
