John Schmitt on increasing the minimum wage, unionization, and the European welfare state

This week I spoke with John Schmitt, a senior economist with the Center for Economic and Policy Research in Washington, DC. Be sure to check out his most recent op-ed, The Bogus Case Against the Minimum Wage Hike   as well as past columns which can be found here.  He has worked on a number of useful studies, papers, and reports which are very accessible and worth a look

Oh and he tweets.

*** Apologies to John and listeners for slight edit-- one of my dogs thoughtfully interjected agreement while John was speaking about the real world being a lot more messy than economic theory. Eh, so is blogging.
