On Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 12:30 p.m. ET, the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) will hold a media teleconference on the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2013 data on income and poverty, with Lawrence Mishel, EPI President, Josh Bivens, EPI Research and Policy Director, and Valerie Wilson, Director of EPI’s Program on Race, Ethnicity, and the Economy. During the call, the speakers will assess what the new data on incomes, poverty and wages indicate about the state of the recovery from the Great Recession, the living standards of America’s families, and economic disparities by race, ethnicity, and gender.
Over the past year, Mishel, Bivens and Wilson have examined wage, income, and poverty trends as a part of EPI’s Raising America’s Pay initiative. In a series of reports, they highlighted our failure to provide broad-based wage growth, explained the role of labor market policies and practices in depressing wage growth and generating inequality and identified policies that will boost wages for the broad-middle class. During the call, they will discuss how the 2013 data relate to these trends. Mishel and Bivens are also two of the co-authors of The State of Working America, 12th Edition, EPI’s authoritative analysis of the living standards of America’s workers.
