unemployment - The New School SCEPA

Brief— Working longer is often proposed as the solution to the retirement crisis caused by older workers’ lack of retirement assets, but new research from SCEPA's ReLab shows this assumption doesn't match older workers' real experiences in the labor market.

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

Our ongoing video series, SCEPA Responds, brings together expert economists, professors, fellows, and research associates to discuss current economic issues and challenge economic doctrines that create systemic inequity. The series focuses on areas such as race, monetary and fiscal policy, and economic growth and crisis, 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.
