Two decades ago, San Francisco launched a series of public policy experiments to improve wages, and scholars have been documenting their effects since. Join the author of the new book When Mandates Work: Raising Labor Standards at the Local Level to learn about the policies, the debate around them and lessons for local, state and federal policymakers.
