What Country is Congress Working For?
DC Insider News for Main Street America...February 12, 2020
It’s a serious question, actually. President Trump basically had to pull teeth to get the Democrats to move on the USMCA trade deal, which was specifically designed to put American business and farmers first. Now, Democrats show their disdain for American business and workers.
The House met on Thursday to pass an “Illegal Aliens First” bill and that’s exactly what they did. From Fox News:
House lawmakers on Thursday passed a bill that would allow illegal immigrants to be eligible for damages from their employer if their labor rights are judged to have been violated — while rejecting a measure that would prevent unions from recruiting those in the country illegally.
Not surprisingly, the Democrats are selling this as a “let’s help the average Joe instead of just the wealthy” but, like most of what they’ve done over the past 10 years, they leaving the average Joe behind to help illegal immigrants get jobs and preferential working rights.
The bill is called the “Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act)”. Another stinging feature of this bill is that it abolishes the state Right-To-Work Laws.
“Where workers have previously had the freedom to choose whether or not to pay fees & join a union, they will now be forced to pay membership fees or lose their job,” Rep. Kevin Hern, R-Okla., said, opposing the bill. “This will put immeasurable power in the hands of union bosses.”
It reads more like a catch-22 for employers. Experts say they won’t be allowed to fire employees once they find out they’re illegal. Sound crazy yet?
