Launched by Chairman Messer, the Task Force for the American Worker is an effort to examine challenges facing modern-day working Americans.
“For generations, the American dream has meant that every American who works hard can find success. But in recent years, frozen paychecks, a tough job market and rising living costs make the American Dream too often seem out of reach,” Messer said. “During the 2016 election, Republicans promised a renewed focus on addressing these challenges and improving the lives of everyday working people. This Task Force is about making those promises a reality.”
The Task Force will hold a series of hearings to examine workforce issues, including stagnant wages and a slow economic recovery, manufacturing, higher education costs, the opioid abuse epidemic, health care, retirement security and trade. The Task Force will seek to find solutions that help address each of these challenges.
