How will automation, tech companies, and the GOP tax plan affect soon-to-be college graduates? Axios' Mike Allen discussed these questions at the Univeristy of Michigan Wednesday. He was joined by top CEOs and hundreds of students to explore the Future of Work.

The lineup:

  • Ms. Emma Kinery, former Editor in Chief, The Michigan Daily
  • Mr. Jim VandeHei, CEO and Co-Founder, Axios
  • Mr. Scott DeRue, Edward J. Frey Dean of Business, University of Michigan
  • Mr. Michael Barr, Dean of the Ford School of Public Policy, University of Michigan
  • Ms. Stacy Brown-Philpot, CEO, TaskRabbit
  • Mr. Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO, JPMorgan Chase & Co.
Mike kicks off the event with Ms. Kinery, The Michigan Daily's former Editor in Chief. The two co-wrote an article earlier this week on the future of journalism. Robert Hall
Jim and Mike discuss how the collision of politics, tech, business, and media will shape the world that current students will lead one day. Robert Hall
Jim tells students: "The world you're about to enter is so much more appealing than the world we entered [...] You can do more of consequence at a younger age much faster than any of us could."Robert Hall

Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) announced on Saturday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Why it matters: Correa is the latest Democratic lawmaker to share his positive test results after last week's deadly Capitol riot. Correa did not shelter in the designated safe zone with his congressional colleagues during the siege, per a spokesperson, instead staying outside to help Capitol Police.

The FBI arrested far-right media figure Tim Gionet, known as "Baked Alaska," on Saturday for his involvement in last week's Capitol riot, according to a statement of facts filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia.

The state of play: Gionet was arrested in Houston on charges related to disorderly or disruptive conduct on the Capitol grounds or in any of the Capitol buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session, per AP.
