Spent quite a bit of time on the minimum wage in various ways, including Robinson’s take that the US doesn’t even really have a minimum wage right now.
Also talked about inflation — or when that becomes deflation — as well as Wisconsin’s recent income tax plan, that the governor partially vetoed.
Robinson is the interim Associate Dean of the College of Business Leadership Ethics and Education at Viterbo. The Central High School graduate got his doctorate in finance from Arizona State.
