Topic Leader: Frank Levy

Workers in the low and middle portions of the occupational distribution have endured a long period of stagnation or slow growth in wages and compensation. While productivity, a necessary condition for growth in real wages, has grown steadily, workers have been getting a smaller share of these gains. This research cluster explores the reasons for the breakdown in the productivity-wage relationship and asks what changes in public policies, labor-market institutions, and organizational practices are needed to once again get compensation moving in a positive and sustainable direction.
