Joint Economic Committee Holds Hearings on Housing "Squeeze"

July 23, 2008

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer, Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee (JEC) will convene a hearing in order to examine the serious impact of rising household costs and stagnant wages in a slumping economy. The hearing entitled, “How Much More Can American Families Be Squeezed By Stagnant Wages, Skyrocketing Household Costs, And Falling Home Prices?” will be held Wednesday July, 23 at 10am in room 608 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building. As the American family continues to suffer from slow wage growth and rising household costs in the declining Bush economy, the JEC will invite leading experts to discuss the stranglehold these conditions place on middle class households and examine troubling data found in a new report measuring the economic, education, and health well-being of Americans.
