In its proposal to increase the minimum wage, the Clinton administration and some scholars have claimed that employment would not be adversely affected. Other research supports the widespread consensus among economists that a higher minimum wage means fewer jobs. In this study, leading proponents of both views discuss the strengths and weaknesses of those arguments.
