Technological innovation and globalization have fundamentally changed the fabric of our society. They have created millions of jobs and lifted billions of people out of poverty. Yet, people are still being left behind. Why? Because the government hasn’t done the bare minimum to manage this change and prepare citizens for the future.
Instead of leaders giving us solutions, they’ve given us gridlock. Instead of giving us principled compromise, they’ve given us partisanship. The cost of doing nothing is not nothing and the people who pay the price are average Americans. Not lobbyists, not special interests who use their money to get what they need, and not the wealthy, who can use their resources to work around change and position themselves to benefit. We have to start prioritizing the worker.
