Technology is expanding—not replacing—opportunities for Americans to work, granting them flexibility via new work models in the Gig Economy, expanding the job pool through the creation of data centers, and helping workers train and develop new skills.
In order for the U.S. to reap the benefits of the 21st century technology workforce, the U.S. Chamber’s Technology Engagement Center (“C_TEC”) believes that policymakers must:
- Embrace innovative and flexible work structures to power the gig economy
- Modernize the nation’s immigration laws
- Partner with the private sector to upskill America’s workforce
- Encourage the deployment of data centers.
