Can You or Your Students Answer This Clinic Prof's Twenty Questions?
1. In 1968 the minimum wage was $1.60 per hour. How much would the minimum wage be today if it had kept pace with inflation?
2. In 1965, CEOs in major companies made 24 times more than the average worker. In 2003, CEOs earned how many times more than the average worker?
These are just two of the questions posed by Prof. William Quigley in his Social Justice Quiz. Take the rest of the quiz and see how you (or your students) fare in this game of twenty questions. (Consider the quiz for a possible beginning-of-the-semester activity).
Quigley is Director of the Law Clinic and the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center at Loyola University New Orleans. Quigley recently delivered the keynote address for "Poverty, Wealth, and the Working Poor," a conference hosted by the Washington University School of Law 's Clinical Education Program, Center for Interdisciplinary Studies, Journal of Law and Policy, and George Warren Brown School of Social Work. Quigley's speech can be viewed on Video Streaming Archive.
