WASHINGTON—The Great Recession has deepened a long-term trend (briefly reversed in the late 1990s) toward a hollowing out of America’s middle class, with job growth predominantly at lower and higher incomes and growing wage inequality. Even after the job losses of the recession are erased, a deeper challenge remains: how to create good, well-paid jobs to sustain and grow America’s middle class.
The Hamilton Project and the Center for American Progress will address the implications of the competitive global economy and rapid technological change for the challenge of creating high-paying jobs in the United States.
