Automotive Communities and Work Force Adjustment
The Midwest automotive belt faces an extraordinary challenge of workforce transition in the years ahead; namely, profound structural change associated with automotive upheaval atop the aftermath of a steep national recession.
In an upcoming conference meeting, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago will partner with the Brookings Institution Metropolitan Policy Program, the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, and the Upjohn Institute for Employment Research. This meeting will gauge the dimensions of the challenge, provide conceptual and evaluative foundations for work force and human capital policies and discuss regional and federal initiatives for workers and their communities in the Midwest. There will be a registration fee of $25. Registration will close on October 5, 2009.
