The Debate is on – Should Michigan Raise the Minimum Wage

Since the United States instituted the first federal minimum wage in 1938, there has been no shortage of debate on the topic. Whether we should raise, lower, maintain, or abolish the minimum wage has warranted serious discussion and heated debate. All sides want to see a flourishing economy, and with economic struggles, a new bill in Congress, and wage protests around the country, there has never been more need for a common ground solution.

To debate the question, “Should Michigan raise the minimum wage?” the Hauenstein Center of Grand Valley State University is hosting a forum featuring Jarrett Skorup from the Mackinac Center for Public Policy and Yannet Lathrop from the Michigan League for Public Policy. These two experts will work through the complex arguments on each side in search of actionable common ground.

The debate is free, and open to the public.  It will be on the Allendale campus of Grand Valley State University, Kirkhof Center, Pere Marquette Room 2204, on Tuesday, January, 14, from 12noon to 1 p.m.
