ECON kickoff April 16-17

You’ll need the Econ Alive! (pg. 116-117) to complete this kickoff.

1.  On January 1, 2013 the minimum wage in Florida rose to $7.79 per hour.  Do you have a job right now?   If yes, how much do you make per hour? Do you think this wage is fair for the work that you do?  Why or why not?

2.  What arguments do Holly Sklar and Paul Sherry make in support of raising the minimum wage?  Cite at least three.  (Use “quotes” when using their words.)

3.  What arguments does Thomas Sowell make against raising the minimum wage?  Cite at least two.

4.  With which side do you agree after reading both arguments?  Why?

200+ words.  Add a relevant photo and spellcheck.
