Joint Center President Attends The Congressional Future of Work Caucus Inaugural Reception

On January 15, Joint Center President Spencer Overton attended The Congressional Future of Work Caucus inaugural reception. The Caucus, co-chaired by Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-DE) and Rep. Bryan Steil (R-WI), was “created to educate Members and their staff, stakeholders, and the public on the challenges and opportunities prevalent in U.S economy.”

Additionally, The Caucus “plans to discuss a number of topics, including the growing effects of automation on the workforce, the emerging impact of artificial intelligence on society, and the possible disruptiveness of technologies on the U.S. economy” and “will serve as both as a repository of information and as a group focused on working across the aisle to ensure that Congress has the resources necessary to make informed policy decisions on the issue.”
