How has the minimum wages or rent controls effected the economy of the country?
The minimum wages affect Uganda´s economy since there is deficiency of workers since
they are not happy with minimum wage according to the number of hours they work and the
debilitating work they do. Economists argue that an increase in minimum wages would decrease
government spending abroad and benefit the economy. It could also increase community-level
economic activities, which somewhat will influence local businesses growth. Finally, in my
opinion it could reduce on income inequality.

Rent controls are example of ceiling floor while minimum wage is an example of price
As per Price ceilings and floors (n.d.), price ceilings keep a cost from transcending a
specific level. At the point when a price ceiling is set beneath the equilibrium price, the quantity

Price floors keep a price from falling under a specific level. At the point when a price
floor is set over the equilibrium price, the quantity supplied will surpass the quantity demanded,
and an abundance of supply or excesses will result (Khan Academy , s.f.).

Indeed, I feel that states ought to get involved while laying out regulations to set least
wages or lease control, since, in such a case that they don't, anybody would settle all alone, and
residents will likely be impacted. For instance, assuming there were no lowest pay permitted by
law or lease control that we are legally necessary to follow, odds are a few landowners or
businesses would exploit this.
