There have been noteworthy changes in the administration of U.S. workforce development and labor (wage and hour) regulation programs since the late 1990s, which spans three different presidential administrations and encompasses major legislative reforms as well. As part of a larger multi-country study sponsored by the International Labour Office, the authors document the more important changes — including shifts in administrative approaches, the introduction of new performance measurement and management mechanisms, and increased use of technology — and associated results over time and discuss their implications for policy.
