    Default AOC bill: Federal contractors must obey labor law and allow unions—or lose



    WASHINGTON (PAI)—Every year, the federal government hands out billions of dollars—$500 billion last year—to corporate contractors and, through them, subcontractors. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to ensure those dollars go to union members, union shops, or firms that will let workers unionize.

    If they don’t, the first-year Democratic Socialist U.S. representative from New York City says legislatively, they’ll lose out.

    That’s the point of HR5073, the A Just Society: Uplift Our Workers Act, which Ocasio-Cortez recently dropped in the hopper. It says, in no uncertain terms, that firms getting federal funds must be pro-worker, obeying all labor laws and not putting roadblocks in front of unionization—or else.

    The federal contractors and subcontractors won’t like the pro-worker provisions, which include everything from card-check recognition after union organizing drives to guaranteeing the right to strike to employer-subsidized high-quality health care to a $15 minimum wage, or prevailing wages, whichever is higher, immediately.

    I would like to see any republican effort to do the same thing. I'll have a long wait.
