eCornell Keynote

The COVID-19 pandemic revealed shocking disparities in U.S. workplaces. As they juggled remote schooling and other new pressures, workers cared for the ill and dying, delivered our food, and put themselves in harm’s way. Now — from tiny coffee shops to the nation’s biggest employers — they’re demanding change. But how can workers improve wages and working conditions when many businesses have closed or are faltering and price inflation may be on the horizon?

Join us to look ahead at whether the labor momentum gained during the pandemic will continue, with Cornell ILR School’s Dean Alex Colvin and a panel of top journalists covering today’s biggest stories about work, labor, and employment in America.
