Some comments on this recent Quotation of the Day post  (that featured a selection from Robert Higgs’s Competition and Coercion ) spark me to pose the follow question. It is not a trick question. Feel free to answer in the comments section.
If the legislated minimum-wage rises in the U.S., which of the following two people is most likely to benefit from that rise: (1) Joe, a black 17-year-old recent graduate of a New York City public school, raised by a single mother, living in a very poor section of inner-city New York, or (2) Jim, a white 17-year-old recent graduate of an exclusive private school, raised in a two-parent household, living in Manhattan’s very wealthy Upper East Side?
