About the Economic Analysis and Research Network (EARN): EARN is a nationwide network of state-based research, policy, and advocacy organizations advancing an inclusive, worker-centered economy through state and local policy change and rigorous research. We are the progressive economic policy and research infrastructure in the states, conducting research, providing data analysis, and developing and advocating policies that confront the fundamental imbalances in the workplace in order to create an economy that works for all of us, not just the wealthy. A core part of the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), EARN is a growing network of 55 research, policy, and advocacy organizations in 43 states around the country and the District of Columbia. The EARN network is coordinated by staff at the Economic Policy Institute and EARN partners.
