Ellie Krasne-Cohen: Policy Focus: Remote Work

Ellie Krasne-Cohen joins She Thinks podcast to talk about this month’s policy focus: Remote Work. We consider the COVID-19 pandemic which brought about many poorly conceived top-down government policies, but it also brought about at least one clear positive—remote work. We discuss the benefits as well as the drawbacks, and what state governments and the federal government can do to help remote workers and independent contractors. 

 

Ellie Krasne-Cohen is a visiting fellow at Independent Women’s Forum. She is the founder of Krasne Strategies, a boutique policy consultancy specializing in research and strategy. Her expertise includes education, religion (particularly Judaism and antisemitism), social welfare, and European issues. She regularly writes for outlets including The Washington Examiner, Jewish News Syndicate, The Daily Signal, and The Daily Caller.
