600 Economists Now Back A $10.10 Minimum Wage

Via: Huffington Post

It’s about time to raise the minimum wage, at least according to 600 economists.

The group, which includes SEVEN Nobel laureates, attached their name to a letter released earlier this month by the Economic Policy Institute urging lawmakers to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. In the two weeks since the left-leaning think tank first published the letter, the list of signatories has grown from 75 to more than 600.

Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour would LIFT about 5 MILLION AMERICANS OUT of  POVERTY, according to a study released earlier this month by University of Massachusetts-Amherst economist Arindrajit Dube, who signed the EPI letter.
