Working Lunch: Health study could link minimum wage to obesity

The study is funded by millions of federal spending

Align Public Strategies explains how a new health study, funded by several million dollars of federal spending, could dramatically change the course of the minimum wage conversation by linking wages to obesity and other health issues. The study will compare workers over the next five years in two popular cities. Plus, the team examines the political landscape and its messaging, which are already affecting state and local races heading into primary season and the midterm elections. Also, this week’s legislative scorecard from around the country includes Gap, Inc.’s role in the scheduling debate.
