Raising the Floor confronts America's biggest economic challenge-the fundamental restructuring of the economy and the emerging disruptive technology that threaten secure jobs and income. Andy Stern convincingly shows why it is time to consider a universal basic income as the nation's twenty-first-century solution to increasing inequality. In 2010, troubled by watching families chase the now-elusive American Dream, Andy Stern began a five-year journey to investigate how technology will impact jobs and the future of work. Stern, formerly the head of the nation's most influential and fastest-growing union, the Service Employees International Union, investigated these issues with a wide range of CEOs, futurists, economists, workers, entrepreneurs, and investment bankers who are shaping the future. The sobering assessment that emerged from his research-across the political spectrum, from libertarians at the CATO Institute to the leaders of the progressive left-is that this time is different: there will be meager benefits that come with full-time work and fewer good jobs overall. Facing such a challenging moment, Stern's solution is fittingly bold: to establish a universal basic income by eliminating many current government programs and adding new resources. At once vivid, provocative, and pragmatic, Raising the Floor will spark a national conversation about creating the new American Dream.

Working conditions impact our health, the amount of time we can spend with family, our options during momentous life events, and whether we keep or lose a job when the unexpected occurs. The global community has accepted the argument that any country that guarantees decent working conditions will suffer higher unemployment and be less competitive. This book shatters this view by presenting the first ever global analysis of the relationship between labor conditions, national competitiveness, and unemployment rates in 90 countries.

"Raise a cheer for Sklar, Mykyta and Wefald! Raise the Floor sets out the arguments for a higher minimum wage and other policy changes so clearly and persuasively that only the most cold-hearted could ignore them. This is a commanding work and powerful tool for the living wage movement that is gaining ground everywhere."â__Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed"Some books tell the story of the working poor. Some give the numbers. Others stress policy solutions. This book does it all, with passion and precision. It's a tremendously valuable resource."â__Jared Bernstein, Economic Policy InstituteMost Americans believe a job should keep you out of poverty, not keep you in it. Raise The Floor: Wages and Policies That Work for All of Us show us how we can translate that belief into reality by raising the minimum wage. Authors Holly Sklar, Laryssa Mykyta and Susan Wefald deftly blend the latest data and real-life stories to show what it takes to make ends meet in today's America.In addition to telling workers' stories, presenting original data, and proposing comprehensive policies, Raise The Floor spotlights businesses, large and small, that demonstrate how good wages are good business - in good economic times and bad.

This report finds that legalizing undocumented workers through comprehensive immigration reform would yield 1.5 trillion dollars to the U.S. GDP over a ten year period, generate billions in additional tax revenue and consumer spending and support hundreds of thousands of jobs. The report, which runs several different economic scenarios, finds that enacting a comprehensive immigration reform plan which creates a legalization process for undocumented workers and sets a flexible visa program dependent on U.S. labor demands not only raises the floor for all American workers, but is an economic necessity.
