Getting Back to Full Employment: A Better Bargain for Working People

with authors Dean Baker and Jared Bernstein
with an introduction by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka

We all know high levels of employment are good for job-seekers—but they’re also essential for improving pay and working conditions for low-wage workers.

In this follow-up to their 2003 book, The Benefits of Full Employment, economists Dean Baker and Jared Bernstein document the dependency of wage growth on low unemployment and present policy options for boosting economic growth and lowering unemployment.

Jared Bernstein, senior fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, formerly served as the chief economist and economic adviser to Vice President Joe Biden, executive director of the White House Task Force on the Middle Class and as a member of President Obama’s economic team.

Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, is frequently cited in economics reporting in major media outlets and his analyses have appeared in many prestigious national and international publications.
