Is Pittsburgh’s economy growing for everyone? from the Pittsburgh City Paper
“The idea of equal economic growth across all demographics is something Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto has campaigned on with his “city for all” agenda. Peduto’s mayoral opponent, Rev. John Welch, has also made inclusive growth a big part of his messaging, arguing the city’s growing economy isn’t improving the lives of the city’s low-income and minority residents. But just how is Pittsburgh doing in terms of growing for all its residents? A new study by public policy nonprofit the Brookings Institution provides some conflicting answers.”
