About the event

What's the deal with the workforce these days? Are unions growing or declining, and what does this mean for our economy? Join us for a lecture focusing on Wisconsin's own economy, workforce, and unions, exploring where we are today and what the future may bring.

Laura Dresser (MSW, PhD, University of Michigan; BA, Rice University) is Associate Director of High Road Strategy Center. A labor economist who has

written about low-wage jobs, care work, inequality and labor market reform. A co- editor of The Gloves-Off Economy: Workplace Standards at the Bottom of America’s Labor Market, lead author of every edition of the State of Working Wisconsin, and frequent source on the Wisconsin economy and unions’ role in labor markets.

Join us after the lecture for catered snacks and a discussion with community members about our local economy.
