On Wednesday, October 7 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern, EPI will host a Zoom event to launch our new project, Unequal Power. Unequal Power is a three-year, interdisciplinary initiative that challenges the assumption that workers and employers have equal bargaining power and identifies why we need to operate with a framework that centers unequal workplace power. The event will feature presentations on this topic by researchers, a brief overview of the project, and a dedication of the initiative to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose dissent in Epic Systems inspired the project.
Opening remarks and overview of the Unequal Power project:
- Thea Lee, President, Economic Policy Institute
- Larry Mishel, Distinguished Fellow, Economic Policy Institute
- Jennifer Harris, Senior Fellow, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
Dedication to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
- Kate Andrias, former clerk to Justice Ginsburg and Professor of Law, University of Michigan Law School
