The problem-solvers at the PPH are pushing Obama's initiative to raise the minimum wage to $9.
Yesterday, an editorial.
Today, an article quoting an "economist" from MECEP.
After quoting some employers who say "that raising the federal rate to $9 an hour would prevent employers from hiring more workers," the reporter blissfully claims that "There's little proof to support those fears," citing unspecified "economists."
That's news to the Employment Policy Institute. See their wonderfully informative website at www.minimumwage.com.
