Please RSVP below if you can join us!



Gregory Lyon is a professor at Georgetown University and conducts research on work and employment, labor markets, health, and technology. He received his Ph.D. from Rutgers University and was a postdoctoral researcher at Tufts University before joining Georgetown. Professor Lyon’s research shows that how people think about the workplace is consequential for which policies, regulations, and campaigns attract support from the broader public. This presentation will draw on original survey data to examine how partisanship in the US is—and is not—related to attitudes about the workplace and labor market policy.
