By Zoom until further notice
Next Economics Club Meeting:
Tuesday February 23rd at 9am. This week our speaker is Adrian Moore. I will be speaking about the minimum wage. I will discuss the latest research on minimum wages effects and complications, who benefits and who does not and about what's going on nationally and in Florida around the minimum wage hike. There is a lot of new and interesting economic research in this area, plus a lot of politics and strong feelings, lol!
