Our country is in the midst of a historic workforce transformation. It is the most critical issue facing the American business community today, and perhaps the top competitiveness issue of our time. As inflation rises, national and global unrest grows, and the threat of a recession looms, the economy has become more turbulent than ever. Moreover, while many employers and employees continue to recover from the devastating effects of COVID-19, the rate and extent of recovery varies significantly by industry, level of education and worker demographics. In certain sectors, a sizable gap persists between the number of job openings and the level of unemployment.

WPI and special guests will discuss our Labor Day Report, including:

  • The economic forecast and current employment landscape;
  • How the Biden administration, U.S. Congress, and state and local legislatures have shaped labor and employment policy
  • The challenges presented by the evolving nature of work and the urgent need for federal policy reforms
