Hard Data on Equity for U.S. Workers

    In this episode of the Horizons podcast, we look at who is getting ahead in the U.S. workforce, who is getting left behind, and why. As income skyrockets in major cities, small towns and rural areas are seeing far less growth, offering residents little chance at upward mobility. Post-pandemic, women are returning to the workforce but their climb to the top of the ladder remains languid. Meanwhile, workers without college degrees are still waiting for a workforce that values their skills. Host Tameshia Bridges Mansfield and special guest Jed Kolko, United States undersecretary of commerce for economic affairs, move the conversation forward from the stage at this year’s Horizons summit.
