In the wake of the 2016 election, Opportunity America, the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution convened a bipartisan group of scholars and policy experts to consider the challenges facing working-class communities and craft a set of policy solutions. In October 2018, the group released its final report, Work, skills, community: Restoring opportunity for the working class – a slate of bipartisan proposals to create jobs, train and retrain workers and revitalize blue-collar communities.
