Labor Policy Initiative

The Labor Policy Initiative is dedicated to freedom in the workplace and the mutually beneficial interaction between workers and job creators. Through high quality research, media outreach and trainings, the initiative educates the public and lawmakers on the value of a government-neutral, free market labor policy.
