The Minimum Wage

Join Ray Suarez for a discussion of the issues surrounding a proposed hike in the nation's minimum wage. It would take more than six dollars an hour to equal the buying power of the minimum wage when it was last raised. Will a raise in the minimum wage actually hurt the workers it's supposed to help? Guests: Kevin Murphy George P. Shultz Professor of Business Economics and Industrial Relations, University of Chicago Graduate School of Business Chicago, IL Speaker Speaker Listeners call in
