    Default House Democrats Pass Major Labor Reforms Boosting Unions

    Sure, the bill is DOA in the Republican Senate, but progressives hope it puts down a marker on workers’ rights...My take? It'll collect dust on McConnell's desk right next to the Butch/Lewis act to save our pensions.

    "The House*voted Thursday*to pass the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, a bill to protect workers trying to unionize, increase penalties on employers who break labor laws to prevent workers from unionizing, and weaken some state-level anti-union laws.*

    “Good labor laws do more than just right the wrongs waged against unions and their members. Good labor laws help ensure people are safe at work and have a shot at decent wages, health care, and a secure retirement,”*wrote*Sara Nelson and Randi Weingarten, presidents of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA and the American Federation of Teachers. “Good labor laws lift up every working person, even those not in a union, because when workers in unionized companies win better wages and working conditions than their peers in non-union companies, those peers may seek to unionize, too—and pressure employers to better their lot. Good labor laws set a standard for how working people should be treated in an economy where there are countless laws already on the books to protect the rich and powerful.” And, they say, the PRO Act is a good start at better labor law—even though it wouldn’t most directly affect their unions’ members."

    Another nonhelp from the Dems.....lip service.
    Send us your money and support and we will knowingly put it out for a vote which will be lost to a GOP majority.
    They know how to hold things till it would actually pass totally....yet they do totally dumb stuff like this.
    Useless with a GOP Senate...and they know it......this is where it surely looks like they work together with the corporations against us......all useless BS when they know it won't pass....they put on the show like they do something for us so they get their names known to stay in office....and it knowingly goes nowhere.

    Already sent my two senators an email asking them to pass it. One will and highly doubt the other one will..
