Event description

Description

In this time of low unemployment, why is it so hard for American workers to make a living? Why haven’t the economy’s gains of the recent past meant higher wages for everyone? A panel of experts examines the power, or weakness, of the American worker—looking at factors such as features of U.S. markets, technology, globalization, gendered wage patterns, and the decline of unions and of the minimum wage. Featuring Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize–winning economist, New York Times columnist, and distinguished professor at The Graduate Center; Heidi Shierholz, senior economist and director of policy at The Economic Policy Institute; Arindrajit Dube, professor of economics at UMass Amherst; and others.
