LER Faculty Member discusses key workplace issues with national media
LER Associate Professor Niki Dickerson vonLockette recently appeared on two national media outlets speaking about key issues facing various segments of the workforce.
In May, Dr. vonLockette was featured in a New York Times' debate on low wage workers. In a piece titled “Desperation Felt by Workers and Consumers”, she pointed to the larger impact of individual business exchanges and price reductions. vonLockette stated, “Stagnant wages combined with increased work hours for Americans create a higher demand for services, while simultaneously providing them with less money to pay for these services.”
Dr. vonLockette was also invited to be a panelist on a Google Hangout seminar, “Occupational Segregation Primer” for Re:Gender, formerly the National Council for Research on Women. She was also appointed to the national program advisory committee for Re:Gender.
