Sheilah Kast talks about the minimum wage with WYPR statehouse reporter Chris Connelly and Johns Hopkins University professor Angus Burgin.
  In 1938, the federal government established a minimum wage for the first time. It was 25 cents an hour, or 4.15 in today’s dollars.  Now, both President Obama and Governor O’Malley have made raising the minimum wage a priority.  In Maryland, the minimum wage is currently the same as the federal rate, 7.25. The legislature is considering a proposal that would raise that to $10.10 by 2017.

Healthcare - 3/7/14

For decades, American policymakers have felt that too much of the nation’s economy was tied to healthcare.  After all, the US spends much more on healthcare than other countries.  The goal among many has been to reduce outlays tied to healthcare, with the logic being that diminished healthcare expenditures would free up resources for other parts of the economy.
