Many of us who share a commitment to updating the policies and institutions governing work and employment continue to be frustrated by the lack of attention to these issues.
I recently participated with colleagues from several other countries on a panel at the 4th Regional Congress of the Americas of our International Industrial Relations Congress.
Each of us was asked: to comment on the following question: “What advice would you have for your president (or prime minister) to improve your nation’s domestic and international labor and employment policy?”
Since unfortunately the current administration has shown little or no interest in these issues, I felt it necessary to modify my response to this question slightly by proposing we start a new tradition by offering a “Shadow Government Work — Employment Policy.”
