The CBO is in the news again this week, with its prediction of the effects of raising the minimum wage on the economy. Mainstream media have latched onto its finding that raising the minimum wage to $10.10 would result in a loss of 500,000 jobs. But they also said it would lift nearly a million people out of poverty and raise overall income by $2 billion. Guess which part of that prediction made all the headlines? MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills discus. Produced by Engender Media Group.
