Arin Dube comments on ballot questions that seek to raise minimum wage

Arindrajit Dube, economics, comments in two stories about ballot questions that seek to raise the minimum wage in Alaska, Arkansas, Nebraska and South Dakota. Dube has suggested that a way to localize minimum wages is to set them at 50 percent of the median wage for a full-time hourly worker. He also says raising the minimum wage by a moderate amount doesn’t cause job losses. (Slate.com, The Dish, 11/4/14)
