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

Friday, April 9, 2021 - 3:00pm

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.

Speakers
Andrew Schrank, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology and International and Public Affairs, Brown University
Clayton Sinyai, Executive Director, Catholic Labor Network, Washington, D.C.

Emily Merola ‘20, Research Associate, Wilson-Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities, University of Notre Dame
