Lawrence Mishel addresses Democratic Party Platform Committee

On Thursday, June 9, EPI President Lawrence Mishel, on behalf of the EPI Policy Center, addressed the Democratic National Convention Platform Drafting Committee about the need for a policy agenda that proactively addresses decades of wage stagnation. Mishel argued that, far from being inevitable or unavoidable, wage stagnation was the result of intentional policy decisions—and can be reversed by making different policy choices, such as raising the minimum wage, strengthening collective bargaining, and providing paid sick leave.
