The UC Berkeley Labor Center invites you to join us for a webinar to discuss two upcoming releases about public sector workers: Data Brief: Public Sector Impacts of the Great Recession and COVID-19 and a blog post: California’s Public Sector: Lessons from the Great Recession for the COVID-19 Response. We will discuss the impact of the Great Recession on public sector employment, the importance of the public sector to economic recovery, and the impacts of COVID-19 on public sector workers. As the state and local governments face significant revenue losses and COVID-19 expenditures, we highlight some important lessons for policymakers about the negative impacts of austerity on long-term economic recovery.
