A recent CATO Institute blog argues that a national minimum wage increases unemployment. BUT all but one of the European countries for which they site data require collective bargaining. Denmark has an effective minimum wage of 19 Euros. Biased blog?

We had a pretty lively chat on SOHs earlier about this one.

Yeah, that was the inspiration for this poll.

I read just about everything CATO puts out. Some of it is ok and everything has at least a grain of truth as a starting point. But let's face it, they start with an outcome in mind and then include only data that supports it.
