Just Wage Working Group

Just Wage Working Group: A Research Project of the Higgins Labor Program

Established in 2016, Just Wage Working Group (JWWG) brings together Notre Dame scholars, staff, and students to pursue the fundamental question of “the just wage” from a variety of disciplinary and practitioner perspectives. The JWWG’s explorations are animated by a foundational question rooted in the Catholic social tradition (CST): On what grounds can any wage be called just or unjust?

By foregrounding CST as a lens by which to view the just wage question—alongside and in conversation with historical, sociological, legal, economic, and other normative approaches—the JWWG offers a unique opportunity to foster dialogue not only between academic disciplines but also among professors, policymakers, and practitioners alike.

Our initial main focus has been the creation of an online Just Wage Framework and Tool for public use.

For the Just Wage Working Group roster and list of presentations we've made, see the links to the left. If you're interested in hosting a presentation by our group, contact Dan Graff.
