Nathan Wilmers

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Wilmers will write a book exploring the extent to which the unexpected decline in inequality over the last decade might lead to lasting wage gains for low-wage workers. Drawing on administrative and survey data, he will examine the extent to which firm composition changes contributed to the decline in inequality and how employers reallocated tasks within low-wage jobs to support higher productivity and higher pay.
