Freedom from Economic Insecurity
Wednesday, March 31 @ 7:30 PM
Gary Fields and Ron Ehrenberg

Economic insecurity is endemic in the United States, with tens of millions of Americans living below the official U.S. poverty line, 40% who do not have enough savings to cover a $400 medical emergency or car repair, millions in the labor force who are unemployed but do not wish to be, no raise in the U.S. minimum wage since 2009, and 50+ million Americans who are food-insecure in times of COVID. Blacks constitute a much larger share of the economically insecure than their percentage in the population.

This talk, as part of TBE’s ongoing engagement with Racial Justice, will explain economic insecurity and suggest some policies to lessen it.
