Academic Trax: Episode 16

In Episode 16, the GEARS Duo banters about the intersection of academia, labor law, and the new overtime rules. We discuss whether minimum wage laws should apply to undergraduate students and/or should be impacted by the so-called “Fight for 15”. We also discuss how the new overtime rules and pay lines affect university positions for postdocs.
