Good Jobs At Good Wages: Putting Los Angeles Back to Work

The recently released "Los Angeles 2020 Commission" report revealed that forty percent of families in Los Angeles are either unemployed or earning less than the minimum wage. Further, statistics show that America’s highest income earners' contribution to the national income has increased from eight percent to twenty percent. Are these issues being effectively addressed by efforts to combat poverty in Los Angeles? What role does the minimum wage play in alleviating income disparity? What are the best ways to create good-paying jobs in Los Angeles? Join a panel of USC students and policy experts for a discussion that will explore this topic from a local perspective.

"Students Talk Back: A Politics and Public Policy Forum" is a series presented in partnership with the USC Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics, USC College Democrats, USC College Republicans and USC Daily Trojan.
