From The Conference Board:

The pandemic’s disruption of labor markets has collided with long-term demographic trends to pose severe challenges to the nation’s future economic health. To address immediate labor shortages as well as deficits in pipelines of future workers, the US must refocus on increasing workforce participation and upskilling.

However, those solutions will still fall short of reaching the number of workers demanded and the skills needed for the US economy to remain competitive. The magnitude of these workforce challenges calls for a modernized US immigration policy; one that is considered as complementary to policies supporting domestic workers.

By attending this webcast, you will learn and hear about:

  • How demographic shifts are creating long-term challenges for labor supply in the US.
  • What policies are needed to increase US labor force participation.
  • Why the labor shortages will require an expanded immigration system.
  • What economic role immigrant workers play and what barriers currently prevent their full integration into the US workforce.
  • Policy options for developing a comprehensive immigration policy to address the long-term challenge of labor shortages in the US.
