Fact Sheets: Full Employment for All - The Social and Economic Benefits of Race and Gender Equity in Employment
August 13, 2015
How much stronger could the economy be if everyone who wanted a job could find one—regardless of race,
ethnicity, or gender?
To inform the Center for Popular Democracy's "Fed Up" campaign, PolicyLink and PERE calculate the social and economic benefits of race and gender equity in employment. We produced 13 fact sheets illustrating what the U.S. economy—and the economies of the 12 metropolitan regions where each Federal Reserve office is located—could look like with full employment. (Metros covered: Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Cleveland, Richmond, Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Dallas, and San Francisco.)
