This is the May 21, 2019 hearing on "Eliminating Barriers to Employment: Opening Doors to Opportunity," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Education and Labor. From the opening statement of Robert C. Scott: "Today's legislative hearing will examine barriers keeping Americans out of the workforce, and also to identify legislative solutions to expand opportunity. Despite the overall strength of the economy, too many still face a range of obstacles to employment, including discrimination, that undermines opportunities to take part in the benefits of work. For example, older workers, workers with disabilities, disconnected youth, and returning citizens are often left behind in today's economy. Our witnesses here today will help us understand the challenges facing each of these groups and how Congress can help solve those problems." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Kisha Bird, Laurie McCann, Daniel Pianko, Shayne Roos, and Seyfarth Shaw.
