Joint Center President Participates in The Committee on Education and Labor's Roundtable on the Future of Work

On Oct. 16, Joint Center President Spencer Overton joined The Committee on Education and Labor's expert roundtable on the future of work. During the livestreamed discussion (which can be viewed below), Chairman Bobby Scott gave opening remarks and WashingTECH Host and former Deputy Director and Senior Policy Counsel of the Media and Technology Institute at the Joint Center Joe Miller moderated the discussion.

Vice President Sarah Ayres Steinberg, Economic Policy Institute Director of Research Josh Bivens, Teamsters Joint Council 7 Political Director Doug Bloch, Federal Trade Commissioner Rohit Chopra, National Domestic Workers' Alliance Senior Policy Advisor Julie Kashen, Upturn Managing Director Aaron Rieke, and gig worker Jernay Wallace.
