Laws can demand doubling the pay for low-skilled workers, but there’s no way to mandate how businesses will deal with unsustainable labor costs.
It matters if the worker isn’t helped, and is even hurt, by minimum-wage hikes. If there is credible research to support this notion, there’s reason to give your fellow Americans the benefit of the doubt.
States nationwide are beginning to join the ‘Fight for $15.’ My job experience in Seattle, Washington helps illustrate why that’s a bad idea.
Studies Paul Krugman ignores show minimum-wage increases significantly reduce the probability of low-skill workers reaching the middle class.
The real value of the minimum wage has hardly changed for half a century. You wouldn’t know that from looking at charts from the Left.
Contrary to public relations pushes and politician promises, people who feel minimum-wage hikes directly find this government intervention hurts, not helps.
Our economy’s urgent moral crisis is not insufficient returns from full-time work a minimum-wage hike can fix. It is insufficient access to full-time work.
