Can we improve America's social contract to better reflect current economic and social conditions? How can we measure progress and promote decent work in the United States?
The New America Foundation, in partnership with the International Labor Organization (ILO,) on July 11 convened a group of experts to explore these questions. The event also marked the release of a new paper, Rethinking the American Social Contract: The International Labor Organization’s Decent Work Agenda in the United States by Lauren Damme. The paper examines how the ILO’s Decent Work Agenda can help us evaluate and renew the American social contract.
