Read Dollars & Sense Real World Macro Article By Arthur MacEwan. Write a discussion post responding to the following questions:
1. Think about workers’ productivity, will it change if they face higher wages? How about inflation? At the end, will well-being improve with higher minimum wage? Are there other aspects that can impact this effectiveness of minimum wage on workers’ productivity and well-being?
