VIDEO: Election Outcomes and Labor Policy in 2021

Prior to the Coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. labor market was experiencing record-setting lows in unemployment and rising incomes, with the largest gains accruing to the lowest-income workers. This was the result of pro-worker and pro-growth tax and regulatory policies. A new congress and administration could not only undo some of those policies but could also pursue actions that could set American workers back decades.

 

In this virtual webinar held on Dec. 9, 2020, I4AW joined together with the Heritage Foundation to  discuss what the election outcomes mean for labor policy in the near-term, including insights about what to expect in 2021 from the next Congress, Administration, and State and Local governments.
