On Monday, the White House, in partnership with the Department of Labor and the Center for American Progress, hosted a Summit on Working Families with the aim of having a national conversation and set a concrete agenda to bring American workplaces into the 21st century.

That conversation brought together businesses, economists, labor leaders, legislators, advocates, and working citizens to talk through the very real issues facing the full spectrum of working families — from low-wage workers to executives. Find out more and see the reaction here.

The White House also shared this great day in the life feature that followed the President on a trip to Minneapolis to meet a woman named Rebekah who sent him a letter sharing the challenges facing her family. Make sure you check it out!
