In an interview with C.J. Polychroniou, PERI researcher Jeannette Wicks-Lim shares her research findings and insights on the politics and economics of increasing minimum wages. She points out that "a majority of Black Americans do not reside in the states raising their minimum wage so that, overall, such workers are underrepresented among the pool of beneficiaries from minimum wage hikes."
