Millennials and Baby Boomers have much in common, especially when it comes to the changing U.S. political economy. Join us for an intergenerational happy hour discussion unpacking the impact of America’s fractured social safety net – Social Security, unemployment insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, and “welfare”.
The program will begin with brief presentations from new research on the challenges that Millennials and Boomers face, followed an intersectional discussion of the common ground (as well as differences) between the two generations.
