William M. Rodgers, III, brings almost two decades of senior policy and economic experience to his current role as professor of public policy at Rutgers University. He served as chief economist at the U.S. Department of Labor from 2000-2001 before coming to Rutgers. In his spare time, he serves on the United Way World Wide’s U.S. Board of Trustees.
Rodgers has been on a number of local boards and worked under various mayors and governors, managing everything from government reform to labor development. It’s this understanding of how policy decisions affect labor and workforce development issues that enables him to speak on a wide range of topics, including income inequality, racial disparities, unemployment issues and government efficiency.
