Professor Kerwin Charles

Harris Public Policy Professor Kerwin Charles was featured in The Economist, discussing the racial wage gap for men, including findings that a median black man’s earnings today, relative to a median white man’s, is roughly the same as his father’s and grandfather’s.

"Minimum wage laws, the decline of unions, the churning associated with low-wage jobs, and other economic shocks, had a greater impact on black male earnings than programs and policies designed to have a direct effect," the paper finds.
