Milton Friedman said, “There is absolutely no positive objective achieved by the minimum wage law.” Using clear and hard-hitting examples, this book shows ”the people who are hurt most by higher minimums are the most poverty stricken.” A thought-provoking hot topic great for class discussions.

Twenty-two chapters of new and established evidence covering millions unemployed

According to the author, "... a high, living minimum wage is strategic folly from the start or as Milton Friedman stated, 'a monument to the power of superficial thinking.'"

What the author is trying to prove to readers is that raising the minimum wage for workers to an actual living wage is a bad idea.

Obviously Steve Baba does not get paid anything close to minimum wage.

According to this book, "...EMPLOYMENT would not change or fall very slightly. But EMPLOYMENT, people working at jobs, is not

This book is written not in a typical narration with dialogue, but in a question and answer type of format. I felt as if I was reading a sesame street service announcement from the 1980s.

If you really need a quick primer this would be fine but other books on the subject of the minimum ...more

poor logic throughout

The author definitely has an axe to grind. He just keeps using the same examples over and over. And they don't prove his thesis. Just a greedy capitalist not wanting to pay workers a fair wage.

Great explanations against raising the minimum wage

The first half of the book is understandable to the lay man, but things get very complicated in the second half!!
