July’s minimum wage increase could effect college attendance

Minimum wage is set to increase from $6.55 an hour to $7.25 on July 24th.

According to the article, David Neumark, an economist from University of California, Irvine, believes “the 70-cent per-hour minimum wage hike this month would kill ‘about 300,000 jobs for those between the ages of 16-24’”.  As of June, 2009, 24% of American teens are already unemployed.
