Last session, the House passed the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, which would represent a significant enhancement to workers’ rights in this country. Union density in the US is the lowest it’s been since WWII, and the people have suffered for it. Right now, companies (especially large ones) have no incentive to obey the NLRA. They know they can’t be fined for violating the law. What type of punishment is “offer Susie back the job she lost two years ago, that she’s already found a replacement for”? The ineffectual type. 100 years ago, the companies had all the power. Once again, the companies have all the power. It is time for Congress to act to give workers back our power so we can negotiate with our bosses on a level playing field. Pass the PRO Act.
