Project for Middle Class Renewal

The Project for Middle Class Renewal’s mission is to investigate the working conditions of workers in today’s economy and elevate public discourse on issues affecting workers with research, analysis and education in order to develop and propose public policies that will reduce poverty, provide forms of representation to all workers, prevent gender, race, and GLBT discrimination, create more stable forms of employment, and promote middle-class paying jobs.

Each year the Project will be dedicated to a number of critical research studies and education forums on contemporary public policies and practices impacting labor and workplace issues.

If you would like to partner with the Labor Education Program in supporting the work of the Project or have questions about the Project please contact Bob Bruno, director of the Labor Education program or (312) 996-2491.
