The New Workplace Reality
Today's employee - from the fast food worker to the professor - faces a new work life reality where the marketplace can offer jobs with lower pay, no benefits, and no security. Are these changes permanent? And, if so, will the American Dream be redefined for the next generation?
With host MARCUS WHITE, Vice President of Community Partnerships, Greater Milwaukee Foundation and with guests SUE JESKEWITZ, Immediate Past Executive Director, Menomonee Falls Chamber of Commerce and Former Republican Wisconsin State Representative; JACK NORMAN, PhD, Milwaukee-based Writer on Economic Policy; JAMES PEOPLES, PhD, Professor of Labor Economics, UW-Milwaukee.
