Just Wage Forum 2021 | Promoting a Just Wage Economy (Virtual)

Friday, February 12, 2021 - 1:00pm to Saturday, February 13, 2021 - 12:45pm

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. 

Opening Session: Promoting a Just Wage Economy 

In this opening session of the Just Wage Forum, we’ll introduce our Just Wage Framework and hear a response by Donald Stabile, Ph.D., Professor of Economics at St. Mary’s College of Maryland and a leading expert on the history and economics of the living wage. Then, on Friday, February 26, and every three Fridays for the next several months, we will host a virtual session featuring a scholar/researcher and a practitioner on one criterion of our Just Wage Framework & Tool.
