Today's Labor Quote: Jared Bernstein
Recently appointed to President-elect Joe Biden’s Council of Economic Advisors, Bernstein, who grew up with a single mother who was a lifelong educator, said:
“Her proudest moment wasn’t when I got a Ph.D., it was when I got a union card with Local 802, the New York City musicians’ union.”
Bernstein earned a degree in music from Manhattan School of Music and went on to earn a doctorate in economics from Columbia University.
