Work is an essential pillar of a thriving life, and a crucial ingredient in the American recipe for upward mobility.  But in this century, as the workforce-participation rate has continued to decline and as our economy has been buffeted by globalization, demographic change, immigration, and technological advance, the prospects of many American workers have been imperiled. 

The 2016 Bradley Symposium on June 15 at The Army and Navy Club in Washington, D.C., will address "The Future of Work in America:  Promoting opportunity in a changing world."

The events speakers will deal with, and try to help answer, several questions.  What does the growing automation of some industries portend for workers?  How does immigration shape the opportunities available to American workers?  Does our welfare system help or hurt low-income Americans reconnect with the workforce?  And how do the changing circumstances of American workers translate into political pressures in this populist moment?

Speakers include:  George Borjas, the Robert W. Scrivner Professor of Economics and Social Policy at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government; Andrew McAfee, a principal research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Henry Olsen, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC); and Scott Winship, the Walter B. Wriston Fellow at the Manhattan Institute.  Bradley Prize recipient Yuval Levin of EPPC will moderate.

Sponsored by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee, the Symposium is co-hosted by the EPPC and National Affairs magazine.  Registration information is available online.
