To support secondary school teachers and students and to spur interest in economics as a subject, the Economics Department of Maynooth University have prepared a 30-minute video about minimum wages.
The hope is that economics/business teachers and guidance counsellors will use it in class to add color to the delivery.
In the first part, there is minimum wage analysis straight out Leaving Certificate Specification. In the second part, interviews are held with academics and policy influencers who are experts on minimum wages in Ireland. The last part discusses the question ‘what is economics?’
The video is available below.
