A new report by the UC Berkeley Labor called “The State of Working East Bay” analyzes living and working conditions among workers in the East Bay before the pandemic – from 2015-2019 – which demonstrates that many workers and their families struggled to make ends meet even before COVID hit. Joining me to discuss are Dr Savannah Hunter, a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow who studies work and inequality. She was the lead researcher for the report we’re discussing today, which follows up a 2012 report of the same name published by East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy – that’s EBASE. We’re also joined by Kate O’Hara the executive director of EBASE.
