To Raise or Not to Raise the Minimum Wage part of Starting Point: Teaching and Learning Economics:Teaching Methods:Interdisciplinary Approaches to Teaching:Examples
In this interactive exercise, students explore the normative and economic issues that arise from minimum wage increases. Students will encounter arguments for and against raising the minimum wage and will make a choice whether not to support an increase. The choices made will then yield results, which may lead to further problems requiring additional decisions. The exercise is designed to engage students in real-world decision-making processes. Students write an essay outlining their initial preconceptions about minimum wage increases, reflectively analyze their exercise decisions, and then articulate their current, more informed views on the issue.
