IAM Chief of Staff and Director of Trade and Globalization Owen Herrnstadt on Thursday, June 11 will join U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) in a webinar to discuss what needs to be done in the U.S. to improve our nation’s manufacturing sector and emerge from the COVID-19 crisis with a more fair economy.
Outsourcing has cost North American workers millions of jobs. In the U.S. alone, over five million manufacturing jobs were lost before the pandemic began, and several million more have been lost since. This crisis has made clear that revitalizing U.S. manufacturing is valuable to all of us.
The virtual event will be held Thursday, June 11 at 3 p.m. ET. You can RSVP here.
Herrnstadt recently authored an article for the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) on this topic. Baldwin, the ranking member of the Senate Employment and Workplace Safety Subcommittee, has been a leader in identifying perils to our economy and national resilience from the hollowing out of our manufacturing capacity.
