Minimum Wage Interview with Jarett Skorup of the Mackinac Center

I had the privilege of guest-hosting WSGW’s The Art Lewis Show on Thursday, and I had a blast debating the minimum wage issue with  Jarrett Skorup from the Mackinac Center for Public Policy.  We didn’t find any real common ground on the issue, but it was a productive discussion, and one that I think the listeners enjoyed.
