Older workers and COVID-19: The harsh economic realities

Date: May 28, 2020

The current public health and economic crisis has affected older people—especially older people of color and the elderly who are poor—in a disproportionate and unprecedented way. Their health, work, and savings are all at a higher risk of decline than other groups in the labor market.

Join the nation’s top experts on older workers, racism, and retirement for a discussion on the current state and possible fate of this often-overlooked subset of the American workforce.

Who: Teresa Ghilarducci, Labor Economist, ReLab at The New School (Moderator)
Kilolo Kijakazi, Institute Fellow, Urban Institute
Monique Morrissey, Economist, Economic Policy Institute
Richard Johnson, Senior Fellow, Urban Institute

What: A live webinar on the harsh economic effects COVID-19 is having on older workers.

When: Thursday, May 28
2:00 p.m.—3:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m.—12:00 p.m. PT
