Students are to create a policy brochure to help notify the public about a specific issue assigned below. Students have the freedom to design the brochure in a way that helps the general public understand the specific issue. The easiest thing to do is create a new document in Microsoft Word and select a tri-fold brochure. The point of the brochures is to highlight an economic issue with solid data and economic reasoning to raise public awareness. Students must clearly favor or oppose the policy in the brochure in a compelling way with strong economic reasoning. A grading rubric has been loaded in Canvas. (Hint – Brochures are two-sided)
Policy Issue – The government proposes to increase the federal minimum wage to $20 per hour to help underpaid workers.
