The ProGov21 Team is excited to announce that the UC Berkeley Labor Center’s research and materials have been added to the database.
Over the years the Labor Center has developed a wealth of sophisticated economic models to evaluate the impacts of local labor policies. In particular, the Labor Center has pioneered methods for measuring the impacts of local minimum wage laws. All their minimum wage law studies as well as their methods documents have been added to the ProGov21 database.
