Labor Policy for COVID-19 and Beyond: Recommendations to Get Americans Back to Work   [open pdf - 229KB]

From the Key Takeaways: "[1] In the wake of the coronavirus, America needs labor policies that will foster--not impede--work opportunities. [2] Closing off opportunities for non-traditional work, driving up labor costs, and restricting flexible work options will keep Americans out of work and delay recovery. [3] Policymakers should eliminate unnecessary regulations and licensing, repeal wage restrictions, encourage workplace flexibility, and enable affordable child care."
