With U.S. Labor Secretary Marty Walsh being grilled yesterday by the House Committee on Education and Labor, very few news outlets focused on the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, choosing to point out GOP push back regarding enhanced unemployment benefits and poor job growth.
But the passage of the PRO Act is pivotal to the Democrat agenda; so pivotal that its main tenet, the “ABC” test and most provisions of the act have been stuffed into the now flailing infrastructure bill. It is also newsworthy that the last holdouts for support of the controversial bill are not those evil, obstructionist Republicans, but Democrats—three of them, to be exact. The two Arizona Senators: Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema; and Virginia Sen. Mark Warner:
The legislation in question is the Protecting the Right to Work Act (PRO Act), and it currently is being cosponsored by just about every Democrat in the Senate, except for the two senators from Arizona and Virginia Sen. Mark Warner.
The independent business community appreciates Senator Warner withholding his support of this economically devastating legislation and is counting on him to continue to do so.
The PRO Act would make major changes to what it means to be a “joint employer.” As background, when two or more business entities share certain employer responsibilities for a worker, then they are determined to be a joint employer under the National Labor Relations Act.
This AP opinion piece above is definitely anti-PRO Act. So is every independent professional, entrepreneur, franchisor and small business person in the country.
I can’t thank @SenatorSinema @MarkWarner @CaptMarkKelly enough for NOT cosponsoring #PROAct and standing firm against massive pressure from unions, DSA, and other Dems in Congress. You are protecting the livelihoods of 50M+ #freelancers. THANK YOU! #NoProAct #FightForFreelancers

Unions may make a lot of noise and throw up a lot of manufactured polls, but mark my words: Nobody who enjoys the freedom to work as they see fit, and employs likeminded people want this disaster. Here at RedState, we have documented this fact
