Indian-American Appointed In Democratic Party’s New Task Force On Economy:- Raja Krishnamoorthi (44), the Indian-American Congressman was appointed on Thursday to a leadership position in the Democratic party’s new task force on economy.
Krishnamoorthi, representing a Congressional district in Chicago, will serve as co-chair for the New Economy Task Force along with his Congressional colleagues Susan DelBene, Debbie Dingell, and Darren Soto. According to a statement, this is a unified effort from the House Democratic Caucus to craft a legislative agenda that will benefit hardworking Americans and middle-class families.
“Fundamentally, building the economy of the future means ensuring that our workers have the in-demand skills they need to thrive and that businesses have the advanced infrastructure they need to grow. On the New Economy Task Force, I look forward to working with my colleagues to accomplish both these goals,” Krishnamoorthi said.
The task force, with a rapidly changing economy and new challenges facing American workers, will ake a forward-leaning approach to job growth, looking at rapidly advancing technology, artificial intelligence, advanced manufacturing, and ensuring workers are trained for the jobs of tomorrow, said Mr. Krishnamoorthi.
The task force is one of five Democratic Caucus Jobs for America Task Forces aimed at identifying opportunities and solutions for American workers in five key areas: Rebuilding America, Jobs With Dignity, Access to Jobs, New Economy, and Reinvesting in Our Returning Heroes.
The co-chairs of every task force in the coming months, will meet with business and labor leaders, issue experts, and American workers to develop policy goals and solutions that will benefit all Americans. The effort was launched by the House Democratic Caucus.
