Center for American Progress: Blueprint for the 21st Century A Plan for Better Jobs and Stronger Communities

The economic challenges facing American workers are undeniable. Our economy has not delivered the levels of employment or the real wages working Americans need to fully participate in or reap the rewards from our nation’s economic growth. The sources of these challenges are many, but insufficient demand for labor—driven by concentration of corporate market power, technical change, and increased global competition—together with the atrophy of institutional supports for good wages; the long-run tendency of highly productive activity to concentrate in particular regions of the country; racial, gender, and other disparities; and extreme weather have all played important roles.
