Virtual Roundtables


Through an alternative set of measurements to quantify the cost of a basic household budget, the ALICE team is able to demonstrate how many households are currently Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed – which happens to be a staggering proportion of people in the United States. Using many of the same data sources and methods, we can also better understand how compensation is distributed among maintenance occupations, in contrast to occupations that are considered “innovative.”


In this virtual roundtable, Stephanie Hoopes and Dan Treglia (United Way – ALICE) will lead a discussion on the relationship between measurement and maintenance.
