Professor Ruben Garcia Featured on KSNV News 3

http://law.unlv.edu/faculty/ruben-garcia.htmlRuben J. Garcia is a Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Feb. 25, he was interviewed by KSNV News 3 for a segment titled The minimum wage debate across the country.

When asked if the minimum wage should be raised, Professor Garcia responded, "I think that it should. I think that it's been $7.25 for a long time nationally. It's been different in other states, higher in some states. Nationally, I think it's really not keeping pace with inflation. The question is really not what I think, but what do the states think, and what does Congress think. It's really a matter of democratic policy."

A recognized expert in the field of labor and employment law, Professor Garcia teaches Labor Law, Employment Law, Constitutional Law, and Professional Responsibility at the Boyd School of Law. He has been quoted in the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, among others, and has appeared on national and local radio and television programs.
