2019 Reimagining a Just Transition
Date and Time: Saturday, October 19, 1:05PM-2:20PM
Location: Eliot Center, Room
Facilitators: Katherine Isaac,; Jed Dodd, ; Gordon Lafer, ; Michael Lighty,
An estimated 1.8 million insurance and administrative jobs will be lost with the implementation of Medicare for All. In addition, the jobs of health care workers will be impacted. This workshop will discuss what a worker-centered Just Transition would look like and who sets the terms of how existing jobs will change? We will explore why most workers don’t trust the promise of a just transition, historical precedents, and how our movement could help set the terms of the broader debate about workers’ interests in economic transitions driven by changes in social policies.
