Minimum Wage!

The Edwards folks have commissioned two posts from me on the minimum wage. The first one deals with economics, and marshals lots of economic evidence to say that raising the minimum wage won't cost us jobs.

The second one, due to go up on Wednesday, will go into why the minimum wage is an especially good issue for Democrats.

Neil, can you edit your posts there? If so, you should change Steven Landsburg's name from "Landsburgh" to "Landsburg", since "Steven Landsburg" is, in fact, his name.

It seems that you are correct! Unfortunately, I can't edit these things myself, but I'll pass this on to a guy who can...

Where is he on a living wage?

Well, he wants a national minimum wage of 7.25 per hour, and he's pushing for all manner of state ballot initiatives to raise local minimum wages.
