The Working for America Institute (WAI) is a AFL-CIO. It promotes economic development, develops new economic polices, and lobbies Congress on economic policy.

Established in 1958, it was previously known as the Human Resources Development Institute (HRDI) of the AFL-CIO. The AFL-CIO changed its name, structure and goals in 1998 as part of a large AFL-CIO restructuring.

WAI receives financial support from the federal government, private foundations and the AFL-CIO.
