Mind the Income Gap: growth from fair wages - 1st July
Real incomes have fallen for nearly three years leaving household budgets under pressure. But slow wage growth also has impacts for the wider economy, with many now arguing that it led to the growing reliance on household debt which fuelled the recent crash.
Our panel of speakers will debate whether we need to secure higher wages to create sustainable growth, and what needs to change to get there.
- Romain Ranciere, Professor of Economics at the Paris School of Economics;
- James Plunkett, Director of Policy and Development at the Resolution Foundation think tank;
- Frances O’Grady, TUC General Secretary
The event will take place from 2pm for refreshments and will begin promtly at 2.30pm
