The Opioid Crisis And the Labor Market

From the Institute for Research on Poverty website: “In this webinar, we hear from Shannon Monnat of Syracuse University, Anita Mukherjee of the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and Rourke O’Brien of Yale University. The presenters discuss trends in the U.S. opioid crisis and overdose cases related to other drugs, how differences in state-level policy responses to the crisis may be leading to different labor market outcomes, and how automation and other changes in manufacturing employment may be connected to increases in working-age mortality.”
