unemployment - The New School SCEPA

SCEPA's latest research finds that the COVID-19 recession worsens the inequality of job safety among older workers. 

Every month, SCEPA releases a rapid response video analysis of the monthly jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The series, titled "SCEPA Responds," features expert economists, professors, and research associates discussing and contextualizing the unemployment numbers to provide insights for working families, older workers, the working poor, minorities, and more.

On Thursday, May 28th SCEPA's Retirement Equity Lab (ReLab) and the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) partnered together for a webinar on the harsh economic effects COVID-19 is having on some of our most vulnerable: older workers.

SCEPA works to focus the public economics debate on the role government can and should play in the real productive economy - that of business, management, and labor - to raise living standards, create economic security, and attain full employment.
