Creating Jobs for the Middle Class


Hour 1

People are talking about the disappearing middle class.  The kinds of jobs that led to a middle class life have become increasingly scarce.  This hour, where have all the good jobs gone?  We’ll look at the struggles of the middle class and talk to two economists about how to create middle class jobs.  Our guests are HENRY FARBER, Professor of Economics at Princeton University and HEATHER BOUSHEY, Senior Economist at Center for American Progress.
