Workers as Owners: A Roundtable Discussion

  • SVC-201, Capitol Visitor Center (map)

Please join the Progressive Policy Institute (PPI) for a lunch briefing Thursday, April 4 at 12:00 PM on how employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) can help American workers build wealth and share in widespread economic growth. ESOPs are proving to be a promising way to ensure that more American workers are benefitting from their companies' growth and saving for retirement. Research has consistently shown that companies with ESOPs enjoy higher wages, higher productivity and higher employee satisfaction while at the same time accruing meaningful retirement savings. This briefing will feature senior executives from employee-owned companies and a discussion of how a few simple bipartisan changes to tax policy can encourage more companies to adopt this model.

Anne Kim, Vice President, Domestic Policy, Progressive Policy Institute

Panel:

Beth Bell, Tax Counsel, House Committee on Ways and Means

Denny Scott, Chief Financial Officer, Burns & McDonnell

Tom Lampe, Vice President, Messer Construction Company

Moderator:

Dane Stangler, Director of Policy Innovation, Progressive Policy Institute
