American workers are working harder than ever and getting less and less for their effort. This is a result of a decades-long effort by corporate special interests and right-wing politicians to undermine the power and protections of workers. But while the rich and powerful are doing everything in their power to stop workers from exercising their rights, everyday people are organizing and mobilizing in record numbers to build worker power.
Workers understand the power of organized labor -- more than half of all un-unionized workers say they would join a union, if given the option. Workers know that organized labor means better jobs, higher wages, and stronger protections in the workplace. At the Progressive Caucus, we’re fighting to expand labor protections to all workers -- starting with passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, which ensures that workers are protected and empowered.
