An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Support the PRO Act

16 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

Support the PRO act. We desperately need this act. The Taft-Hartly act crippled workers ability to organize. It kept the power to abuse and exploit workers firmly in the handa of owners and we have suffered under it. While the PRO act doesn't undo all of the Taft-Hartly acts evils, it doesn't allow managers to join unions, it is a strong step in a positive direction. Strong union's mean a stronger economy and better pay. Too many unions are crushed under our current rules or are crippled in how they can negotiate. Employers have a monopsony on employment and workers need a monopoly to counter it. You will here plenty of disengenuious arguments about how limiting workers ability to negotiate is somehow bad for us. Or how owners will stop running businesses if they can't exploit workers quite so much. Businesses adapt and people should always come before profit.
