How is Lexington Addressing Wage Growth for Low Wage Workers?
In November of 2018, CivicLex distributed a city-wide survey asking what residents considered to be major issues within twelve sectors of city government and policy.  When we looked at the survey responses, we  found that respondents placed wage growth for low wage workers in Lexington as their priority issue.   In this episode, we interviewed Dustin Pugel, a policy analyst at the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy, about wage growth in Lexington and the state, and Elodie Dickinson, the city's Workforce Development Program Manager, about the program and how it's helping workers in the city.  Read more about the issue at our website CivicLex.org Visit KCEP and learn more about their work. Check out Lexington's Workforce Development Program and their partnerships with businesses and organizations throughout the city.
