The Washington Center for Equitable Growth would like to invite you to the next installment in our new academic seminar series. 

Our next seminar will take place on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 from 12:15PM to 1:30PM. Professor Rosemary Batt of Cornell University, and currently visiting at Equitable Growth, and Eileen Appelbaum, senior economist at the Center for Economic and Policy Research, will present a research agenda to analyze trends in "domestic outsourcing" in the United States. They examine firms' use of contractors and independent contractors and how this affects job quality and inequality. If you would like to read the paper in advance, you can find it here.
