Dube Research on Minimum Wage Tapped by White House, Media
Research by Arin Dube (economics) on minimum wage has been widely cited lately, including by President Obama. In his State of the Union address he called to increase the federal minimum wage to $9 per hour, and then index it to inflation. At right is the resulting flier that takes users to the minimum wage factsheet on the White House website. Dube is named in the section entitled "A Stronger Middle Class Is a Key to a Stronger Economy."
Subsequently Dube received lots more press coverage. Following is a listing with links.
