Labor Law Reform

The income inequality gap is the largest it has been in 50 years. Wages are stagnant and working people often have to work two or three jobs to make ends meet. The balance of power has shifted completely to corporations and the labor laws designed to empower and protect working people are outdated and weak. 

It wasn't always this way. During the Great Depression, we enacted fair and common-sense labor laws to correct the balance of power between working people and big business. Since then, corporate interests have surgically weakened those laws.

It’s become harder for people to improve their working conditions.

Today, union-busting consultants are paid millions of dollars to deny workers a voice on the job and a seat at the negotiating table. Working people fighting to stand in union together are fired. Employers refuse to negotiate in good faith. Far too often, the financial consequences for breaking federal law are virtually nonexistent.

But Congress and the President can solve these problems by passing laws that empower and protect working people by allowing them the freedom to join together at work, negotiate a fair return at work and hold wealthy corporations accountable. Working people can then rewrite the rules to build an economy that works for all of us.

Tell Congress to Pass the Protecting the Right to Organize Act

It was just a nonstop barrage of anti-union stories. It was very intimidating, and exhausting.
