A news story on how the debate over raising the federal minimum wage has shifted over time cites research published this year by a team of economists that includes Arindrajit Dube and Doruk Cengiz, economics. The study found local effects of more than 130 minimum-wage increases since 1979 where the decrease in jobs paying less than the minimum wage was fully offset by an increase in jobs paying just more than the new wage rate. The story also mentions other research Dube has done on the minimum wage and how it affects the job market. (Washington Post, 7/8/19)
