Donald Stabile, professor of economics and professor of the college at St. Mary’s College of Maryland and a leading expert on the history and economics of the living wage, is a guest speaker at the Notre Dame Just Wage Forum 2021 on Friday, February 12, beginning at 1 p.m. Notre Dame Just Wage Forum 2021 is a series of Zoom conversations between scholars and practitioners in pursuit of a fairer and more inclusive economy.
Stabile’s topic of discussion is "The Seven Just Wage Criteria: A Perspective from Historical Study of a Living Wage," which will help answer questions like: What makes any given wage just or unjust? What are the rights, responsibilities, and roles of employers, workers, government, unions, community groups, and the public more generally in securing safe, decent-paying jobs and economic opportunities? What are the best ways to tackle the persistence of structural discrimination and increasing economic inequality?
