Fascinating analysis from : while federal min wage has been stuck at $7.25 for a decade, the *effective* avg min wage is $11.80, which is an all-time high after adjusting for inflation. That's because of state/city min wage hikes

"Renters Are Mad. Presidential Candidates Have Noticed." Most impressed so far with plan (no surprise there). Encouraging (and overdue) to see demands for on tenant protections bubbling up into the Democratic primary.

Perhaps minimum wages really only “bite” once they exceed a certain level, or maybe employers have been reacting to them in ways not easily captured by wage data, writes

The pattern has dramatically changed over the last 5 years. Prior to 2013 or so, state & local minimum wage hikes were broadly only sufficient to keep the effective minimum treading water inflation-wise or against typical wages. Since then, they've proactively raised it.

When adjusting for inflation, it's very likely the $12 effective minimum wage we see today is the highest in US history.

Economics tells us that employers will cut jobs or hours for low-wage work in response to being required to set the price of labor above the level consistent with market supply and demand. Is that happening now?

I'm in today with a piece about the US minimum wage. The federal minimum has been $7.25 for almost a decade now, but thanks to states & cities, the average minimum wage is closer to $12.
