WORKERS' COMPENSATION: A government-run insurance program that provides benefits to workers injured on the job. Funding for these benefits come from premiums paid by employers. The federal government mandates the program, but it's administered by each of the states. This creates a great deal of diversity, with some states having good benefits and high premiums (sort of pro labor), while others have lousy benefits and low premiums (pro business). In addition to differences among states, premiums also differ based on a business's historical record of accidents. Those companies with a higher number of industrial accidents pay more in premiums than those with fewer accidents.

MINIMUM WAGE: A legally established price floor on the wage paid to labor. The minimum wage was initiated in the United States in 1938 at a rate of 25 cents per hour. It has been raised numerous times since then. The logic behind a minimum wage is to ensure that workers obtain an adequate income for their efforts.
