“In 2017, middle-income white households had eight times as much wealth ($86,100) as middle-income black households ($11,000), and 10 times as much wealth as middle-income Latinx households ($8,600).“

For this reason, the authors argue for more pre-apprenticeship programs, sector partnerships, and a focus on skills are a critical part of a new strategy.
