Push To Lift Minimum Wage is Now Serious Business


The New York Times, 7.23.15
Ruth Milkman, a labor historian and distinguished professor at the City University of New York Graduate Center in Manhattan, traced the roots of the push to increase the minimum wage to the Occupy Wall Street movement that pulled hordes of protesters into the streets of New York City four years ago. "The reason this is getting traction now is that there's a lot of concern in the broader population about growing inequality," she said.
