The community conversation on income inequality and possible solutions are coming up again next Tuesday in Egg Harbor. The first workshop this past Tuesday had 39 participants share their experiences and ideas in solving the income inequality and poverty that exists in the area. Jim Black, who co-leads the workshops, explains how the first session shared some diverse ideas addressing the problem.
According to an Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE) study by the United Way of Door County, one-third of the people living in the county make more than the Federal Property Level but less than the cost of basic living. You can find the upcoming schedule of workshops being held at the Bertschinger Center in Egg Harbor with this story online. A $15 fee covers all the four remaining sessions.
January 23 7-9pm
January 30 7-9pm
February 6 7-9pm
