An IRA Update from Garrett Ferencz, TrueBlue’s Chief Legal Officer

“PeopleReady’s legal team has spent months diligently reviewing the proposed workforce provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). With the U.S. Department of Treasury and the U.S. Department of Labor expected to announce a final version of the legislation in Q1 of 2023, our preparation allows me to confidently say that We Are Ready™ to meet the apprenticeship program and prevailing wage requirements of the IRA.
