The Aspen Institute Workforce Strategies Initiative hosts a conversation titled, "Better Care through Better Jobs: Improving Training and Employment for Direct Care Workers." This is the second conversation in a roundtable series in 2012 titled "Reinventing Low Wage Work: Ideas That Can Work for Employees, Employers and the Economy.” Low wage jobs are a growing part of the U.S. economy, and AspenWSI is excited to continue this conversation about the nature of low-wage work, the challenges it presents to workers, businesses and the economy, and the opportunities we have for addressing these challenges at the Aspen Institute at a time when jobs and the economy are such critical topics for our country.
