Noted national labor scholar to deliver 2014 Roberta Gassman Distinguished Lecture at UW Waisman Center
Noted labor scholar
Stephanie Luce, Ph.D.
In 2011, 28 percent of U.S. workers – almost 37 million people – earned poverty-wages.
Despite a supposed economic recovery, the U.S. is facing a crisis of low-wage jobs and working poverty, and even workers with college degrees cannot be assured of attaining high wages and stable jobs.
Stephanie Luce, associate professor of labor studies at the Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Worker Education at the City University of New York (CUNY) School for Professional Studies, and a nationally renowned scholar on low wage work, will speak at UW-Madison on April 24, 2014.
“We are thrilled to have Professor Luce deliver the 2014 Roberta Gassman Distinguished Lecture,” said School of Social Work Professor and Director Jan Greenberg. “The problem of working poverty is growing in the United States, and impacts the practice of social work at all levels.”
Luce’s talk, “Lifting Up Low Wage Work,” will discuss possible solutions to the low-wage jobs crisis in the U.S.
