Arnidrajit Dube, economics, say there is a lot of interest in seeing how high a minimum wage can be set before it begins to create negative impacts on the job market. He suggests setting a minimum wage at around 50 percent or 60 percent of the median pay is in line with what many countries are doing. He says there is also interest in trying to push that a little bit higher. (Wall Street Journal, 5/4/19)
