Arindrajit Dube author of new paper looking at effects of minimum-wage increases across 137 locales since 1979

Arindrajit Dube, economics, is the author of a new paper that looks at the effects of minimum-wage increases across 137 locales since 1979. Dube concludes that on average, minimum-wage increases eliminated jobs paying below the new minimum but added jobs paying at or above the minimum. (Daily Journal, [Ill.], 2/7/18)
