Topic Wage Stagnation

The labor market in the United States has experienced persistent wage stagnation for many workers along the income distribution in recent history. Understanding why wages have not grown for most workers, despite long-term productivity gains and economic recovery, is a key challenge for researchers and policymakers. Equitable Growth digs into data and analysis of the determinants of wages and the overall health of the labor market to understand what policy levers are useful to curb wage stagnation along the distribution.
