Professor emerita of economics Nancy Folbre has been chosen to receive the Beth Shulman Award from the National Employment Law Project in recognition of her scholarship and leadership promoting employment issues of special concern to low-wage and women workers. 

Named for a champion of low-wage worker rights and former board president of the National Employment Law Project who passed away suddenly several years ago, the Beth Shulman Award will be presented to Folbre on April 30 in Washington, D.C.

During the ceremony, the National Employment Law Center also will be honoring Labor Secretary Tom Perez and the Ford Foundation for their support of low-wage worker advocacy.
