dc.description.abstractUsing Massachusetts Healthcare Reform passed in 2006 we explore the casual effect that universal insurance has on labor market outcomes in the healthcare care industry. Using aggregated data, we find an increase in employment in the healthcare industry and no effect on the average wage of healthcare workers. The majority of the increase in employment we see, 80,000 jobs, occurs post 2012 when an amendment to the bill is accepted placing price controls on the medical industry.
