Life and Poverty Simulation: A Perspective for Business on the Challenges Facing the Workforce
Business leaders, employers, stakeholders, civic leaders, and decision makers in the Greater Chequamegon Bay are urged to attend an important poverty simulation exercise this fall in Ashland, Wisconsin.
Attendees will participate in the Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE) household poverty simulation exercise. The role-playing simulation educates and informs participants to the realities of life faced by hard working people in northern Wisconsin.
Why Attend and Participate?
A flourishing community starts with healthy, secure families. Thriving families make the Greater Chequamegon Bay region even stronger. Secure workers mean every working family earns enough to get ahead financially, meets basic needs, and saves for emergencies and their family’s future. We invite you, as a key regional stakeholder, to join us!
The simulation serves as a reminder that financial hardships do not necessarily occur as a result of bad financial decision making and will better define the types of decisions this population is faced with on a regular basis. After the event, you can expect to have more knowledge around the financial stress of this population, improve the culture within your organization and/or community, and indirectly increase your return on investment in your employee experience.
