American workers need better jobs and better pay. They have been left behind in recent decades — as the U.S. economy expanded and C.E.O. salaries skyrocketed. Join us as we welcome Robert B. Reich, former labor secretary under Bill Clinton, and Ai-jen Poo, head of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, to outline the changes we need for a fairer and better economy, in this conversation moderated by The Times’s David Leonhardt.
Then, watch Okieriete Onaodowan (“Hamilton”) and Lexi Underwood (“Little Fires Everywhere”) perform a poem written by taxi drivers, nannies and others from the Worker Writers School at PEN America. And hear from Times readers who share how much they make and whether they think their pay is fair.
