Postmates is exploring policy solutions with lawmakers to address workforce challenges in the gig economy. Last month, Postmates expressed support for the federal Skills Investment Act of 2019, bipartisan legislation that would expand Coverdell Education Savings Accounts to include skills training, career-related training and professional development. The Council’s Workforce of the Future team is exploring the Skills Investment Act and its potential for lowering barriers to entry for development courses. The act would help expand potential worker and employee economic growth and mobility, while creating a more robust middle-skilled workforce for employers.
