Just Wage Initiative

What makes any given wage just or unjust? An interdisciplinary group of scholars and students from Notre Dame has developed a Just Wage Framework & Tool to probe this foundational question. Designed to engage stakeholders from across the spectrum, this interactive initiative promotes discernment, dialogue, and deeds pointing toward a fairer, more inclusive economy.
