Inclusive Growth

Economic Policy

We are focused on investing in people, jobs, physical capital, the environment, and certain sectors and regions to achieve inclusive and sustainable growth.

What We're Doing

Promoting powerful long-term investments for growth

We work to address structural issues in the economy, correct the k-shaped economic recovery that will likely worsen inequality, and target investments in disadvantaged communities. These changes will bring real, equitable, and sustainable benefits to affected communities and strengthen our economy.

Increasing worker power to achieve inclusive growth

We work to ensure executive actions and legislation promote high-quality jobs, increase worker power, and raise standards for government contract workers. As part of this effort, we are pushing for a federal $15 minimum wage and finding new ways to give workers a voice in their workplace.

Incorporating inclusiveness and sustainability

We are advancing corporate disclosure, consumer protection, community development, and antitrust measures as efforts to limit excessive corporate power and develop a new social contract between workers, government, and corporations.
