AoW Notes

What is an academic argument really?
What is the purpose of the template?

  • "the moves"
An exemplar shared:

The general argument made by Josh Barro in his work titled “A $15 Minimum Wage.  But Why Just for Fast-Food Workers?” is about how raising minimum wage for only fast-food workers is not the best plan.  More specifically, he argues that raising the minimum wage will result in business owners figuring out ways to work around paying $15 an hour to their employees.  This is apparent when he writes, “A business owner who previously ran chain fast-food franchises might choose instead to open independent stores to avoid the wage requirement.”  In conclusion, Barro’s belief is that a higher general minimum wage is better than exclusively raising minimum wage for just fast-food workers.
