The Aging Studies Institute at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University invites you to
“The Missing Working Class”
Professor of Public Policy and Sociology Chair
Johns Hopkins University
This presentation will discuss the situation of young adults in the United States with high school degrees but not bachelor’s degrees. They constitute a large group that has been greatly affected by the globalization and automation of production. They are the heirs of the industrial working class, and they are being overlooked in our political discourse. The presentation will talk about the sharp changes in partnering, marrying, and having children that have occurred to them over the past several decades. Both labor market and cultural explanations for these changes will be explored, as well steps that could be taken to assist them.
