Biden Minimum Wage Czar Demands Federal $15 Wage, but Students Under Him as Dean Make $13.50

While President Joe Biden’s nominee for Wage and Hour Administrator at the Department of Labor frequently calls for a $15 an hour minimum wage, the nominee has not called for students at the university he works at to receive the same.

David Weil, who Biden announced as a federal nominee last week, has backed a $15 an hour wage while not instituting such a policy at Brandeis, where he is a dean and professor.

According to the Office of Student Financial Services, the minimum wage at the private school in Massachusetts is $13.50 an hour, the same minimum wage set by the state. Given the dean’s influence and position as a staunch progressive, it is curious why he would work at a school that does not provide the same compensation he seemingly determines is necessary.

“As my co-author @EDerenoncourt eloquently points out, wage spillovers shown in our research arise from market power,” tweeted Weil in March, in relation to a post that a University of California at Berkley professor who called for a $15 minimum wage. “Unions create countervailing power to allow sharing of gains w/ workers. That’s what’s at stake in Bessemer, Alabama.” (Read more from “Biden Minimum Wage Czar Demands Federal $15 Wage, but Students Under Him as Dean Make $13.50” HERE)
