    Monday Morning Speaker: Heidi Shierholz

    "The State of the Job Market in 2014" What is causing today's persistent high unemployment and what it means for your job search.

    with HEIDI SHIERHOLZ, Ph.D, Economist

    What you will learn in this session:

      Is today’s persistent high unemployment being caused by workers not having the right skills for the jobs that are available, or by weak demand for workers at all levels of skill?  


    Heidi Shierholz joined the Economic Policy Institute in 2007. Her areas of research include trends in employment, unemployment, and compensation, income and wealth inequality, the low-wage labor market, the minimum wage, and the gender wage gap. Shierholz is a frequent contributor to broadcast and radio news outlets, including: ABC, CBS, CNN and NPR, and is regularly quoted in print and online media outlets, including the New York Times, Washington Post and the Huffington Post.  She has repeatedly been called to testify in Congress on labor market issues.  She is also a member of the board of directors of the DC Employment Justice Center. She previously worked as an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Toronto.

    Ph.D., Economics, University of Michigan
    M.A., Economics, University of Michigan
    M.S., Statistics, Iowa State University
    B.A., Mathematics, Grinnell College


    Plan to join us after the meeting for networking.  Many of us carry our conversations to lunch at the nearby Brookings Institution.
