Gusto joins the Modern Economy Project

Steve Abbott

Gusto is proud to be founding member of the Modern Economy Project (MEP), a broad coalition of stakeholders focused on bipartisan policy solutions that promote economic opportunity for all through support of modern jobs, modern employers, and a modern government. MEP is dedicated to updating the antiquated conversation in Washington, which is too often reduced to outdated posturing and political talking points. Our goal is to more accurately reflect the realities of our modern economy, with input from employees, employers, and policymakers.
