Assistant Professor Jeffrey Jones argues for “New Economic Covenant”

December 08, 2008

While the federal government and economic experts focus their attention and resources on the corporate sector, Jeffrey Jones,  assistant professor of law and author of The Unaffordable Nation: Searching for a Decent Life in America, argues in this opinion piece that U.S. workers should not be left out of economic stimulus plans.

“Much has been made about bailing out American corporations and whether government has done enough to help American workers,” Jones writes. “The interests are not opposed. Restoring our economy requires policies that promote good employment.”
