Free Virtual Osher Lecture from the John D. Spreckels Center through July 5

Each week the John D. Spreckels Center is hosting a free virtual Lecture through a continued partnership with UC San Diego’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. This week the topic of learning is Using Minimum Wages to Fight Inequality and Policy presented by David Neumark. This video will be available for online viewing through Sunday, July 5, 2020.

The primary arguments for a higher minimum wage is (1) that it will increase earnings of low-wage workers, and (2) that it will increase incomes – specifically to reduce poverty of low-income families. This lecture discusses the U.S. evidence on the results of wage increase, and briefly touches on an alternative to minimum wage.

Neumark’s work examines the numerous areas of labor economics that intersect with important public policy issues.  He received his MA and PhD from Harvard University.
