How Biden’s American-Style Industrial Policy Will Create Quality Jobs

How Biden’s American-Style Industrial Policy Will Create Quality Jobs

The Inflation Reduction Act, the CHIPS and Science Act, and Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act are key pillars of a transformative industrial policy platform.

With the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, the CHIPS and Science Act, and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), President Joe Biden has signed into law three key pillars of a transformative economic policy platform that will not only accelerate economic growth and rebuild broken supply chains in the United States, but also uphold high standards for workers. The Biden-Harris administration’s signature investments in infrastructure, advanced domestic manufacturing, and clean energy and energy efficiency will support millions of jobs that pay good wages, empower workers, and are accessible to local workers from all walks of life.

The new laws support the creation of good jobs by including job quality measures such as prevailing wages, registered apprenticeships, and domestic manufacturing and content requirements. They will also incentivize government spending recipients to go even further to create good jobs and build a more equitable and diverse workforce.
