David Cooper

Progressive Democrats have made raising the minimum wage a priority for the new administration. And for good reason.  David Cooper says a $15 minimum wage would lift pay for tens of millions of workers and help reverse decades of growing pay inequality.

Philip E. Wolgin

One of the first actions of the Biden administration was to put a pause on deportation for some undocumented immigrants. Philip E. Wolgin says it’s only the first step toward a fair, humane, and workable immigration policy that must move forward.
