About This Meeting

With the unemployment rate flirting with multi-decade lows, the U.S. economy runs the very real risk of running out of workers. Policymakers and economists who assume that sidelined labor will return to the workforce must face up to the realities of those no longer in the labor force. Unlike past cycles, social issues have now become economic problems that present significant barriers to improving labor force participation.

Jeff Korzenik will argue that the opioid epidemic is our greatest workforce challenge, but show that private sector models for reentry, giving a second chance to ex-offenders, provide an opportunity to extend our workforce and economic cycle.
