Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Sociology and of Population, Family, and Reproductive Health, Johns Hopkins University
In her book, $2.00 A Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America, Kathryn Edin illuminates a troubling trend: a low-wage labor market that increasingly fails to deliver a living wage, and a growing but hidden landscape of survival strategies among America's extreme poor. Edin will discuss how these families live and survive, in addition to what she sees as possible policy solutions for breaking this cycle of extreme, and cashless, poverty.
