panel new peopleA Special WNDC Forum on Labor and the Economy
Why the Democrats Lost Labor and How We May Win Them Back

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 (Evening)

TIME: 6:30 – 8:30pm

EVENT TYPE: Forum

In the face of more aggressive international trade policies on the part of the Trump Administration and the escalating economic tension with China, what should be the Democratic trade agenda that will help protect the interests of American workers?

Our panel, which consists of renowned labor leaders as well as leading economic and trade experts, will discuss this and related issues and try to respond to the real problems facing workers in the de-industrialized areas of Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. The discussion, which will also focus on ways to strengthen the US position in the international trade system, could set the stage for an agenda of new trade policies that Democratic candidates could present to the voters in 2018 and 2020.

Panelists:
Liz Shuler, Secretary/Treasurer, AFL-CIO
Jared Bernstein, Senior Fellow, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and former Chief Economist and Economic Adviser to Vice President Joseph Biden
Thea Lee, President, Economic Policy Institute
Daniel Loveless, Business/Finance Manager, Steamfitters Union Local 602

Moderator: Nuchhi Currier, WNDC President
