The stakes could not be higher for working people. Research from the Economic Policy Institute shows that wages are 2.5-5% lower for high school and college graduates than they were in the year 2000, with the cost of living increasing in tandem.
Everyone should have the right to organize their workplace and join a union, but less than 11% of workers were unionized as of a 2018 study- which can likely be attributed to the fact that the majority of employers require work meetings that push anti-union messaging.
The PRO Act, or the Protecting the Right to Organize Act, would protect and empower the right to union membership and democratized workplaces.

History shows that unions work. Teachers striking in L.A. in 2019 negotiated a 6% raise. Striking Frito-Lay workers in Topeka, Kansas, and Amazon workers in Bessemer, Alabama, have shown us just how valuable the right to unionize is by fighting incredibly wealthy corporations for better working conditions.
Our laws need to protect our communities in the workplace. The PRO Act is a crucial step in initiating that protection.
