Associate Professor of Labor Studies,

Waisman Center Auditorium, UW-Madison

In 2011, 28 percent of all U.S. workers – almost 37 million people - earned poverty-wages. Despite a supposed economic recovery, the U.S. is facing a crisis of low-wage jobs and working poverty, and even workers with college degrees cannot be assured of attaining high wages and stable jobs. This talk will discuss some of the possible solutions to our low-wage jobs crisis.
