12:00 pm
Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center
100 Lytton Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15213

Keep Social Security & Medicare Off the Federal Budget Chopping Block!

What is happening to our great nation? The middle class is vanishing, and income inequality is the worst in our nation’s history. Many people work their whole lives but have too little or no retirement savings. Proposals in Washington call for short and long term benefit reductions to both Social Security and Medicare. The 14th Congressional District could lose over $4 million in benefits for seniors in 2015 alone! Enacting the proposed changes will hurt older people, local economies, women, and the disabled in greater proportion. Join us to hear from experts who will dispute the myths, and join with advocates who are fighting back against balancing the federal deficit on the backs of those most in need of these cherished federal programs.

Getting Back to Full Employment Book Signing at Busboys and Poets

6:30 p.m - 8:00 p.m.
Busboys and Poets
5th and K
1025 5th Street, NW
Washington, D.C., 20001

While the media and politicians hype debt crises, the real American economic crisis is continuing, devastating, high unemployment. In addition to the millions who are unemployed, the weakness of the labor market has made it impossible for most workers to achieve real wage gains.  As a result the benefits of the economic growth we have seen have gone overwhelmingly to the richest 1 percent. In Getting Back to Full Employment, Jared Bernstein, formerly the Chief Economist and Economic Adviser to Vice President Joe Biden, and Dean Baker, one of the first economists to recognize and warn of the risks of the stock and housing bubbles, focus readers' attention where it should be: getting more Americans jobs.  They show how the economic well-being of a large swath of American workers depends on the unemployment rate.  Particularly in an era of historically high inequality, full employment would provide workers with the bargaining power needed to secure higher incomes and a fair share of the economy's growth. Dean and Jared will be at Busboys and Poets to discuss and sign copies of the book. Find more information about the event here.
