Description

The Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse (SSRC) will sponsor a webinar in Understanding the Minimum Wage: Implications for Workers, Employers, and Communities, on August 9, 2018 from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. EDT. This webinar will focus on how changes in the minimum wage affect individuals, families, employers and the economy. Today, the U.S. economy continues to grow and the unemployment rate remains low. Wage growth, however, remains slow for much of the labor force. The federal minimum wage has remained at $7.25 an hour since 2009. The combination of job growth and wage stagnation has led many localities to increase their minimum wage.
