Raising Kentucky's Minimum Wage on Eastern Standard


Last month, the city of Louisville voted to raise the minimum wage to 9 dollars an hour, a move that will be complete by 2017.  As part of the 2015 Kentucky General Assembly, a bill is on the table that could see a similar increase state-wide.   

On this week's Eastern Standard we'll talk the Minimum Wage in Kentucky.

Our guests this week: Frank O' Connor, Professor of Economics at Eastern Kentucky University; Ken Troske, Professor of Economics at the University of Kentucky; Jason Bailey, Director of the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy; Kentucky State Representative Rita Smart; Kentucky Senate Member Joe Bowen.
