Of course, the labor market is more complicated. Most important, workers have varying skill levels, and a higher minimum wage will lead employers to hire fewer low-skilled workers and more high-skilled workers. This “labor-labor” substitution may not show up as job losses unless researchers focus on the least-skilled workers whose wages are directly pushed up by the minimum wage. Moreover, fewer jobs for the least-skilled are most important from a policy perspective, since they are the ones the minimum wage is intended to help.

Despite the evidence of job loss, policymakers and the voting public have raised minimum wages frequently and sometimes substantially in recent years. Since the last federal increase in 7559, 78 states have raised their minimum wage. In these states, minimum wages in 7569 averaged % higher than the federal minimum (Figure 6). If these higher minimum wages have in fact lowered employment opportunities, this could have implications for changes in aggregate employment over this period.
Pay attention to domain name extensions, .,.edu (educational institution),.gov (government), (non-profit organization). These sites represent institutions and tend to be more reliable, but be watchful of possible political bias in some government sites. Be selective (commercial) sites. sites are excellent however, a large number of them contain advertisements for products and nothing else. Network Solutions provides a link where you can find out what some of the other extensions stand for. Be wary of the millions of personal home pages on the Net. The quality of these personal homepages vary greatly. Learning how to evaluate websites critically and to search effectively on the Internet can help you eliminate irrelevant sites and waste less of your time.

NoodleTools pulls back the curtain so that you can offer early, in-context feedback on students’ work at predictable bottlenecks and ahead of the writing space.
8. Do not put results in this section. You may, however, include preliminary results that were used to design the main experiment that you are reporting on. ( In a preliminary study, I observed the owls for one week, and found that 78 % of their locomotor activity occurred during the night, and so I conducted all subsequent experiments between 66 pm and 6 am. )
NoodleTools gives students a systematic but flexible framework for navigating the tangled web of research. Students develop expert critical-thinking skills, gain confidence, and replace patchwriting and plagiarism with synthesis.
