This grant to Aspen Institute will provide partial support for a series of roundtable discussions that will examine low-wage work in several different industry sectors, including food service, retail trade, and construction. The forums will provide the opportunity for in-depth discussions on improving job quality, compensation, benefits, and advancement opportunities for low-wage workers and their families. The goal of the project is to increase awareness and illuminate strategies for improving opportunities and conditions in traditionally low-wage industries among policymakers, the business community, and workforce practitioners.
This grant will enable Michigan State University to conduct a thorough examination of the range of policy solutions being employed to address the fiscal and economic problems facing many older industrial communities, including Flint, Michigan.
