Sherrill’s new assignment: help create jobs

Democratic congresswoman to head NDC task force

By Ashley Gallagher, July 27 2021 11:23 am

Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-Montclair) will lead a task force on the Future of Work and Capitalism for the New Democrat Coalition, a group of centrist Democrats in the U.S House of Representatives.

“The future of work is a question that each generation must confront but is especially pointed as we recover from the economic fallout of this global pandemic,” said Sherrill. “Bolstering our workforce development efforts and growing the economic sectors of the future, like clean energy, are already central to my work in Congress.”

Sherrill’s task force will seek solutions to outdated systems and uses of new technologies as it considers ideas to create job and expand the skills of the American workforce.

Rep. Haley Stevens (D-Michigan) will co-chair the panel with Sherrill, a two-term New Jersey congresswoman.

“New Dems are focused on getting things done and delivering tangible change for Americans so that they can succeed in the 21st century,” said Rep. Suzan DelBene (D-Washington), the NDC Chair. “The NDC’s task forces will continue to help deliver by developing policy ideas that promote equitable growth and opportunities for all Americans.”
