Within the next decade, the U.S. workforce is projected to increase by 11.5 million to reach nearly 168 million. Advances in automation – most notably, the dramatic rise of artificial intelligence and other innovative technologies – have ushered in new concepts of what exactly it means to earn a living. For workers and employers alike, the future of work is no longer something that stands in the distance, but something that must be grappled with now.
What, then, is the future of the American workforce? Do we have the infrastructure in place to meet the needs of the jobs that are being created? What role can employers play in this process and how can they alleviate workers’ anxieties surrounding healthcare and retirement savings? What policy initiatives should leaders in the administration and Congress focus on in order to support the workers of today, while preparing the workforce for tomorrow?
The Hill will gather key policymakers, labor officials, employers and employees for high-level conversations examining how we as a nation can anticipate and meet the demands of a technology-driven economy.
