The Broad Reach of the Minimum Wage

Author

  • Oren Levin-Waldman

Abstract

No single policy decision in the past thirty years stands out as more symbolic of the time than the resistance to raising the federal minimum wage. This economist argues strongly, however, that far more than those at the bottom of the rung were affected. The level of the minimum wage affects wages well up that income ladder.
