The research behind Maine’s $15.77 living wage

This week on the podcast, Allyson Fredericksen of the Alliance for a Just Society calls in from Seattle to discuss the latest Job Gap report, which she authored and which calculates that there are nine job seekers for every living wage-job opening in Maine.

Allyson and Mike discuss AJS and their reports, what the numbers mean for Maine workers, and how issues of gender and race intersect with economic opportunity.

The podcast will be going on a brief hiatus over the holidays, so look for the next new episode in the new year.
