In partnership with Northland College's Center for Rural Communities and WITC, the LWV is hosting a talk by Laura Dresser titled “What’s Going on for Working Wisconsin and What Can We Do?".
Drawing on her two decades of research on the Wisconsin economy and solutions to inequality and wage stagnation, Laura Dresser will present an overview of key trends for working people in the state.
Offering data on wages, income, and poverty and providing some thoughts on how those are reshaping lives in our communities, Laura will also describe some concrete steps that can be taken at the state and local level to help rebuild opportunity. Dresser’s talk will be followed by a 30 minute response panel of local people with expertise in business and workforce issues.
The forum is sponsored by WITC, Northland College Center for Rural Communities, and the LWV of Ashland/Bayfield Counties with funding from the Duluth Superior Area Community Fund.
