Just Wage Working Group

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

Established in 2016, Just Wage Working Group (JWWG) brings together Notre Dame faculty, 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.

We are developing an online Just Wage Framework and Tool for public use. Both are currently works in progress, but you can engage a simple version of the Just Wage Tool here.
