Nonprofit Roundtable Montgomery, with Montgomery Moving Forward, invites you to the first local conversation with the authors of Bursting the Bubble
in order to drill down on the data and explore how it fits with kindred efforts such as Montgomery Moving Forward
, Connecting Youth to Opportunity
and Ready for Tomorrow: Workforce and Education Summit
. This is a chance for members of Nonprofit Roundtable Montgomery and stakeholders in Montgomery Moving Forward to consider what is being done or planned in Montgomery County related to jobs and workforce development in a more regional context.
The local regional economy is good for some, but leaves many behind, according to the study published by the Maryland Center for Economic Policy
, The Commonwealth Institute
(of Virginia), and the DC Fiscal Policy Institute
, Most workers in the national capital region are struggling just to get by, seeing their wages stagnate or fall while the highest earners are enjoying strong wage growth. The study
concludes that inequality is growing as top earners race ahead of those in the middle and the bottom and that there is much to be gained when approaching challenges around skill building, affordable housing, health care and job creation as a region, not only as individual counties and cities.
