A columnist writing about how progressive economic policies such as raising the minimum wage for fast-food workers in Minnesota doesn’t cause job losses cites research done on the subject by Arindrajit Dube. The writer says critics of the policy says workers in Minnesota are losing jobs compared to similar employment in nearby Wisconsin that doesn’t have a higher minimum wage. Dube’s research looked at the impact on jobs of counties that share borders but have differing wage rates and found there was no adverse effect on jobs. (StarTribune [Minneapolis], 7/25/18)
