As part of the Deliberative Dialogue Series, Barry University’s Center for Community Service Initiatives (CCSI) invites the Barry community to a discussion entitled The Poor Becoming Poorer? From Poverty Wages to a Living Wage.
Date: Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013
Time: 4 – 5:30 p.m.
Location: Andreas 111
Information on the event:
The gap between the wealthy and the poor in the United States continues to grow. One proposed solution is the implementation of a living wage. A living wage is the minimum income necessary for a worker to meet their basic needs. However, opponents to the living wage argue that implementing a living wage would have a negative impact on businesses and other parts of the economy.
Is the Living Wage the solution to ending poverty? Join us for a lively public dialogue on this important issue.
