 Introduced  by M. of A. STERN -- read once and referred to the Committee
   on Labor
 AN ACT to amend the labor law, in relation to establishing  the  commis-
   sion  on  the  future  of  work;  and providing for the repeal of such
   provisions upon expiration thereof
   Section 1. The legislature finds and declares all of the following:
   (a)  New  York  state  is committed to developing a plan to become the
 most competitive, durable, equitable  and  sustainable  economy  in  the
 world,  where  technology  innovation  shall  strengthen, not erode, the
 middle class.
   (b) Technology, when put to work for the benefit of human society, has
 fueled progress throughout history, unlocking the growth of high-quality
 goods and services  coupled  with  overall  price  reductions,  dramatic
 reductions  in poverty, disease, and famine, as well as leaps in science
 and the arts.
   (c) Exponential growth in technology innovation, including  automation
 and  artificial intelligence, as well as broader economic trends of wage
 stagnation, declining workforce participation, rising income inequality,
 and growth in part-time, lower-wage  jobs,  compel  New  York  state  to
 update  its  planning around education, employment, and the economy as a
 whole to better understand, anticipate, and shape the future of work  in
 the short and long term.
   (d)  The  commission on the future of work is necessary to prepare New
 York state residents for the future of work and to  ensure  advancements
 in  technology  serve  the  construction  of  a durable middle class and
 sustainable economy.
   § 2. The labor law is amended by adding a new section 211-b to read as
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
