This paper reviews the relationship between inflation rate and minimum wage in Iran’s economy over the 1969-2005. According to the economic literature, there is a narrow relationship between inflation rate and minimum wage. Some economists believe in increased inflation due to minimum wage. The other group of economists considers the increased inflation as a cause for increasing minimum wage. The study results do confirm the existence of causal relationship from inflation rate to minimum wage.
