Anne E. Price, director of the Closing the Racial Wealth Gap, presented to the Assembly Aging and Long Term Care Committee


Anne E. Price, director of the Closing the Racial Wealth Gap, presented to the Assembly Aging and Long Term Care Committee on March 4. This hearing is one of eight in a series examining California elders in all demographic groups and regions. Price reviewed how women are faring, the growth in senior population especially among Asians and Latinos, and persistent wage gaps that leave women economically insecure as they age. Six in 10 minimum wage workers are women. Increases in the minimum wage for today’s workers and state supplemental income payments for seniors would benefit both women and California’s slow-recovering economy.
