The Impact Of Raising The Minimum Wage To $15 An Hour, available for use

  Late last month, Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley proposed raising the minimum wage for full-time city workers to $15 an hour. An increase in the minimum wage has been discussed all around the country. Just last week, California governor Jerry Brown signed legislation raising California'?s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022 and New York is following in California's footsteps.

Here to talk about the pros and cons of raising the minimum wage are Research Associate at the University of Cincinnati Economics Center, Chris Nicak, and Assistant Professor of Economics at Xavier University, Dr. Ed Kosack.
