Breakfast and Our Quarterly Meeting 

Topic: Seattle Minimum Wage Study. 

Speaker: Professor Jacob Vigdor      

University of Washington Evans School of Public Policy & Governance. 

The Seattle Minimum Wage Study is a research effort dedicated to providing rigorous analysis of the impact of minimum wage. As more states and localities move forward with plans to raise the minimum wage, this research will infuse the debate with data on the effects on workers, households, employers, and the local economy.  

The study was commissioned by the City of Seattle to study the impacts of the minimum wage ordinance passed in 2014. Some of the study research questions include: What is the impact of a higher minimum wage on workers, their families, employers, and the community? Does a higher minimum wage affect employment and earnings among low-wage workers? Does the higher minimum wage affect overall employment, business longevity, or the mix of firms that do business in Seattle? How do businesses adapt to higher labor costs?

Professor Vigdor is the director of the Seattle Minimum Wage Study and holds affiliations as a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, an adjunct fellow at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, and an external fellow at the Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration at University College London. At the Evans School, he specializes in teaching quantitative methods, with an emphasis on techniques for inferring the causal impact of policy interventions.

Professor Vigdor has published more than 60 scholarly articles and reviews on a range of topics in social policy, including education policy, immigration policy, housing policy, and racial and economic inequality. Professor Vigdor received a Ph.D. in Economics from Harvard University in 1999 and a BS in Policy Analysis from Cornell University in 1994.
