Many commentators were surprised that voters in traditionally “red” states passed minimum wage increases.

Call for Proposals: Spring Conference 2015

Dec 08, 2014 03:00 PM

The goal of the conference is to begin a dialogue among academic researchers; policymakers, who create policy; and practitioners, who implement policy. The conversation aims to advance the exchange of knowledge and information among these sectors, creating better informed policy deliberations. APPAM will use this conference to determine if the Association can play a role in this exchange, and if so, what that may entail.
