We will be using Google+ Hangouts to host three rounds of facilitated small-group dialogues online on the issue of employment and the minimum wage in the greater Chicago, IL area:
- The first Hangout is for our participants to get to know each other and to explain and hear about their employment situations.
- The second Hangout will feature interviews with Conservative, Liberal and Alternative experts, who will also drop in to answer questions.
- The third Hangout aims to tie it all together: what have people learned, have they changed their perspectives, and will this affect their lives?
This first Hangout takes place Tuesday, October 29 at 5pm Central Time (that's 3pm Pacific, 6pm Eastern).
We are very pleased to welcome Susanna Haas Lyons as our facilitator. Susanna will be facilitating a group of people from the Chicago area to discuss work and the minimum wage. They include employees, employers, minimum wage workers, unemployed job seekers and other people interested in the issue.
Anyone can watch this Hangout and use the new Google+ Q&A feature to ask the participants questions (to ask a question or comment, you will be instructed to join or sign in to Google+).
