Panel Event & Report Rollout on Auto Manufacturing Jobs in the Transition to EVs
Globally, and here at home, the auto sector is moving rapidly towards electric vehicles (EVs). This shift holds great potential for auto and manufacturing workers, the economy and the climate, but its impacts on workers and manufacturing communities depend on policy action Congress takes now. A new report from the Economic Policy Institute will demonstrate the powerful impact that proactive, pro-worker manufacturing policies and investments will have on ensuring robust, onshored electric vehicle manufacturing and supply chain that uplifts workers and brings good jobs back to the US. Action now can save and create jobs, reverse disinvestment in manufacturing communities and combat economic inequality.

On Wednesday, September 22 at 12PM Eastern, please join us for a virtual panel event on America’s transition to clean vehicles, and how strong policy can ensure that the economic and jobs benefits accrue to workers and communities here in the U.S.
