Wiemers reviews earnings instability trends in Equitable Growth essay

Emily Wiemers"Earnings instability and mobility over our working lives: Improving short- and long-term economic well-being for U.S. workers," co-authored by Associate Professor of Public Administration and International Affairs Emily Wiemers, was published in the Washington Center for Equitable Growth's book of policy ideas for 2020 titled Vision 2020: Evidence for a Stronger Economy. Wiemers and co-author Michael Carr briefly review what recent research suggests about trends in short-run earnings volatility, permanent earnings inequality, and mobility, as well as the causes of these trends. They then offer a number of policy recommendations that they think will help alleviate some of the negative effects of these recent changes. 03/05/20
