The U.S. labor market appears to be strong, with low unemployment and record numbers of job openings in 2018. Yet wage growth remains slower than many economists and analysts would expect. In this webinar, Michael Strain of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) will discuss potential factors behind this slow growth in wages and examine differences in trends across specific groups. He will also talk about policies with the potential to address wage growth and labor force participation, especially for lower income Americans.
