The White House released a fact sheet Wednesday detailing Biden’s proposed $2 trillion infrastructure package that includes a call to pass the PRO Act, which is currently languishing in the Senate after passing the House. The law would overturn right-to-work laws in 27 states and expand the ability of the National Labor Relations Board to fine employers that violate employees’ organizing rights.

“[Biden] is calling on Congress to ensure all workers have a free and fair choice to join a union by passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, and guarantee union and bargaining rights for public service workers,” the fact sheet states. The sheet also says that increased union membership can increase worker productivity. The labor overhaul, however, would overturn existing laws in more than half of the states in the country that allow employees to work without requiring union membership.

  1. The sheet also says that increased union membership can increase worker productivity.

    Ha.

  2. I’m glad I don’t have to defend voting for this. Four years of this administration will have millions more Americans dreaming of working.

  3. The investment community doesn’t agree with you.

    The Dow and Nasdaq average are both up about 18% since election day.

  4. The sheet also says that increased union membership can increase worker productivity.

    Ha.

    You never worked in a Union Shop….. lol

    Unions Decrease Productivity.

  5. Patrick misunderstood my comment. I was not praising unions, I was mocking them

    There is a fair amount of optimism in the business community, expectation of a significant rebound this year

  6. As the restrictions come off and those that can get back to work the economy will look like it’s improving, but it is in a viscous death spiral.

    Complete destruction of the Energy Sector and the Largest Tax increase since 1968 has wiped out all real growth for as long as this bunch is in power.

  7. No worries

    It’s ridiculous To think that unions would lead to increase productivity

    American Unions fight to the death for the least productive employees. Very different than German unions
