Who Needs the Minimum Wage?

program date: 
Mon, 02/03/2014
Joe Clement talks with Geoff McDonald and Peter Oxforn about the wage system. Geoff recently wrote an article for CounterPunch urging more critical questions about the wage system than exist in the minimum wage debate. This discussion builds on those arguments and takes issue with the "cynicism of public policy". Both he and Peter edit  Ruthless Criticism, an English-language site that helps to disseminate articles and points of view from a German political journal, GeganStandpunkt. 14:42 minutes (6.73 MB)
