Human services are not only lifelines for people in need; they improve the quality of life for all of us.

Any one of us may find ourselves in need of human services due to unexpected loss of a job, catastrophic illness, natural or human disaster, or other life circumstance.

——————————————–

Here is more information about the debate:

The recent attempts to constrict collective bargaining and to reduce public employee costs touched off a national political storm in Wisconsin.  Leading progressive and conservative experts Richard Brodsky and Daniel DiSalvo will debate what lessons New York State should draw from the recent political unrest in Wisconsin.

 

Former Assemblyman Richard Brodsky, currently a Senior Fellow at Demos and the NYU’s Wagner School, and Assistant Professor of Political Science Daniel DiSalvo of the City College of New York—CUNY will square off on Thursday, April 28th at 6:30pm under the watchful eye of the moderator Dr. Dennis Smith, Associate Professor of Public Policy at NYU’s Wagner School of Public Service.

 

The event is cosponsored by the Wagner School, Demos and the Wagner Policy Alliance.

 

Brodsky stated, “There’s been a real lack of public debate about these issues in New York. In this new political environment everything is on the table and the case for collective bargaining and workplace democracy needs to be made even as we seek to reduce the cost of government.”

 

DiSalvo stated, “The crisis in state and local finance triggered by the Great Recession will be central to American politics for the foreseeable future.  A wide range of reforms, including changes in state-union relations, are needed to make government more responsive, efficient, and flexible to meet the demands of the 21stcentury.”

 

In recent weeks Brodsky has debated former Gubernatorial candidate John Faso, Manhattan Institute scholar E.J. McMahon and former Lieutenant Governor Betsy McCaugheyon issues ranging across the spectrum of economic social and political issues.

 

DiSalvo has recently discussed events in Wisconsin on NPR’s All Things Considered and is the author of the influential article, “The Trouble with Public Sector Unions,” in the fall 2010 issue ofNational Affairs.
