I've chosen the effects of minimum wage on unemployment as my EPQ title thinking it would be an interesting topic but now I realise that it's actually quite complicated and I don't understand any of it at all.

I have no idea how to structure my EPQ and my teacher is useless and won't let me change my title

Some help would be much appreciated. Perhaps recommendations on sources and particular points to focus on

Thanks in advance!

So my thoughts would be, if I was doing this, I’d structure it something like:

1. Introduction / general outline e.g. explaining the National Minimum Wage, National Living Wage, current values, purpose/aims etc
2. Basic diagrammatic analysis
3. Impact of NMW/NLW on different types/groups of people
4. Impact of NMW/NLW on unemployment in short run vs long run
5. Unintended consequences, trade-offs and other things to consider
6. Evaluation
7. Summary and conclusion

That would be how I’d initially plan to structure it I reckon.

You’ll need to do a fair amount of reading and research, but here are a couple of starting points:

Hope this helps! Good luck with your EPQ
