Close to 15,600 adults living in Philadelphia work full-time, yet live below the poverty line. At the national level, wage inequality is a growing problem, as wages continue to surge for those at the highest income levels while remaining stagnant for low wage workers and those lacking a college degree. Join us for a half-day conference on the importance of fair wages in promoting greater economic mobility for Philadelphia’s workforce. The event will feature keynote speaker Anne Price from the Insight Center for Community Economic Development in Oakland, California, followed by remarks by Mayor Jim Kenney and a panel discussion with local and national experts.
