Abraham quotes cited by The Hill

Democrats should follow Clinton’s lead on wage hike, commentators say

Michael Saltsman and Samantha Summers, in an opinion piece in The Hill, advise House Democrats to "take a lesson from Bill Clinton," former U.S. President. They argue that Clinton’s mandate was similar to today: the economy was healthy, unemployment rate was at 4.6 percent and that his advisors knew that, “a sharp wage hike wasn’t wise.” Among the economists cited was Faculty Associate Katherine Abraham, a member of Barack Obama's White House who stated that she was “concerned” about the impact of a minium wage hike to $15 per hour. The citation referred to Abraham’s 2018 research examining employment-decline rates.
