Is an increased minimum wage an opportunity creator or a job killer?

The living wage is a pertinent policy issue in Washington State. How will this potential increase in the state's minimum wage affect college students and young professionals?

Last week, the WPC Young Professionals hosted a statewide debate series that packed Kane Hall at the University of Washington with more than 300 students, elected officials and interested citizens. Attendees heard from a unique group of panelists including WSJ's Stephen Moore, Center for American Progress' Sarah Jane Glynn, economic experts, local legislators and business owners. Moderating in Seattle was Seattle Top Story's Robert Mak.
