Restarting Opportunity in the Connected Age

As America goes through the biggest economic transformation in a hundred years, millions of Americans are losing faith in the American dream. Technology and globalization are redefining work as we know it, and we need a bold vision for a new way forward. We need to rethink how people learn and train for the jobs of the future, and create paths to expand business opportunities in America. Imagine the possibilities if we put in place a modern, networked labor market that efficiently and transparently matches people who need a job with the right employers and training providers. The defining challenge of our time is making sure all Americans have a meaningful place in the new economy.
