Just Wage Forum 2021 | Just Wage Provides Basic Social Security (Virtual)

Friday, April 9, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

The Just Wage Forum 2021 is a series of conversations between scholars and practitioners on the Just Wage Framework & Online Tool

  • What makes any given wage just or unjust?
  • What are the rights, responsibilities, and roles of employers, workers, government, unions, community groups, and the public more generally in securing safe, decent-paying jobs and economic opportunities?
  • What are the best ways to tackle the persistence of structural discrimination and increasing economic inequality?

On select Fridays through July 2021, join us for Zoom webinars featuring a diversity of perspectives. 

Criterion 3: Social Security

A just wage includes -- for the worker and the worker’s household -- adequate health care coverage; retirement income; wage protection in case of injury, inability to work, and death; wage protection in case of unemployment; and provisions for paid leave upon the birth or adoption of a child, provisions to defray the expenses associated with child care, and paid family leave upon the extended illness of a household member.
