The Fight For $15, And John Grisham's Latest Thriller: 1A At The Aspen Ideas Festival

Three years ago, Seattle agreed to raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour. One new study says that's been a disaster ... but another says it's been a success. Which is it? And will either study affect other cities that are under pressure to follow Seattle's lead? We're joined by Jacob Vigdor, director of the Seattle Minimum Wage Study; Ben Zipperer, an economist and co-author of an article critical of the Seattle Minimum Wage Study; Veronique de Rugy, senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University; David Hyde, a reporter at KUOW – Puget Sound Public Radio; and David Meinert, a restaurant owner in Seattle. Then, we talk to best-selling author John Grisham about his new novel, "Camino Island." Grisham's latest thriller stars a struggling young writer.
