Finding Fairness in Wages

November 18, 2021

Learn more from these speakers: Henry Fields, Workforce Analyst and Economist for the Oregon Employment Department in Lane and Douglas Counties; Sarah Kalloch, Executive Director of The Good Jobs Institute; and Megan Pratt, Coordinator of the Oregon Child Care Research Partnership.
