Celebrating 75 Years of the Fair Labor Standards Act: A Working Papers Series
2013 marked the 75th anniversary of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). To commemorate the passage of the FLSA, in November 2013 researchers, policy experts, advocates, and workers joined together to discuss the past, present, and future of the FLSA, the American economy, and worker protections.
As part of this forum, several academics and researchers presented information and findings from their research on the FLSA, labor standards, and other worker issues, captured in this working paper series.
The framework and agenda for the panels were developed in collaboration with the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment at the University of California, Berkeley
