Is California's $15 minimum wage law a good idea?

California has passed a law that will raise the state's minimum wage to $15/hr by 2022. Does this law make economic sense? Is it a sound policy in pursuit of social justice? Don Boudreaux, Professor of Economics at George Mason University, and Mike Konczal, fellow at the Roosevelt Institute debate the issue at an event sponsored by the University of San Diego's Center for Ethics, Economics, and Public Policy.
