Pavlina Tcherneva, Associate Professor and Chair of Economics of Bard College and Research Scholar of the Levy Institute of Economics will present her paper: “The Job Guarantee”. Millions of people in the United States need jobs. Of those fortunate enough to be employed, how many people stay in jobs they hate, exploited by management or doing unconscionable work, because they feel they have no choice? How many are struggling to support themselves on unlivable wages or juggling multiple jobs just to get by? Meanwhile, crucial public services get cut, local infrastructure decays, and people's basic needs go unfilled. A federally-funded, locally-administered Job Guarantee could change all this almost immediately.
Presented by The New School for Social Research.
