The Debt Dialogues [Episode 36]: Diana Furchtgott-Roth on the Fast Food Protests

The Debt Dialogues is a weekly podcast that aims to educate young people about the welfare state and how it will affect their future. In this episode, I interview Diana Furchtgott-Roth, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, on the recent demands by fast food workers for a $15 an hour minimum wage. Topics covered include:

 

  • How the minimum wage hurts low skilled workers

 

  • The empirical evidence about the effects of the minimum wage

 

  • How wages are determined on a free market

 

  • The impact of unions
