IRLE ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: New minimum wage policy and research
Share

Monday, September 29, 2014
12:00-1:00 PM
UC Berkeley Labor Center
2521 Channing Way, Berkeley, CA

EVENT SPEAKERS:

Sylvia Allegretto, Center on Wage and Employment Dynamics
Annette Bernhardt, Visiting Professor of Sociology and Visiting Researcher
Ken Jacobs, Chair, Center for Labor Research and Education
Michael Reich, Professor of Economics, Director, Institute for Research on Labor and Employment

As protests for higher minimum wages rock localities across the country, UC Berkeley researchers have provided some of the most critical and widely-cited economic studies of how these increases would impact local economies. Local policy briefs have been published on recent minimum wage proposals for the cities of Seattle, Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego. The authors will discuss these studies as well as California’s minimum wage proposals, the effects minimum wage increases have on SNAP and Medicaid, and other minimum wage proposals being considered throughout the country.

Please R.S.V.P. by emailing Myra Armstrong at zulu2@berkeley.edu.
