Workplace Fairness joins workers' rights organizations in supporting the Protecting the Right to Organize Act.
While the economy is working very well for the wealthy, the well-connected, and the massive corporations—it’s stagnating for everyone else. From 1980 to 2014, income for the bottom half of income earners grew by one percent, while income for the top one percent of earners grew by 205 percent. This inequality, stagnation, and instability for so many is not a natural product of a functioning economy, it is the result of policy choices that have stripped workers of the power to stand together and bargain for fairer wages, benefits and working conditions.
The Protecting the Right to Organize Act is a historic proposal that restores fairness to the economy by strengthening the federal laws that protect workers’ right to organize a union and negotiate higher wages and better benefits. -- Committee on Education and Labor
