Study on Relationship Between Profits and Wages

The National Employment Law Project has released an important study focusing on companies’ profits and whether profits translate into better wages.  The study, based on US census data, has some significant data for retail and other low-wage service workers, including that the large companies making profits still primarily only pay minimum-wage.  The NELP media release with key links is available here.
