What Does a Biden Presidency Mean for Tech?
Protocol, November 7, 2020
By Kevin McAllister
A jobs focus, a stronger FTC and FCC and an emphasis on worker skills could be in store following the Biden win, according to members of the Protocol Braintrust.
BSA President and CEO Victoria Espinel wrote: "First, an immediate and primary focus for the Biden administration will be inclusive economic recovery. Software technology has a major role to play here as a job creator and a job supporter. Many businesses, workers and students have been relying on software technology to operate their businesses, work and learn remotely, connect with loved ones, and access essential services through the pandemic. We as a nation have an opportunity to increase access to economic opportunity by focusing on education, worker training and reskilling programs, promoting high-speed internet access across the country, and expanding access to technology for underserved communities."
