New Podcast Episode: What Is the PRO Act?
It’s The AAF Exchange — your source for clear, data-driven insight into today’s economic and domestic policy issues.
In our latest episode, AAF’s Director of Labor Market Policy Isabel Soto discusses her latest research on the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. She explains the PRO Act’s changes to the joint-employer standard, worker classification, and right-to-work laws in 27 states. Soto also considers the economic cost of these changes and their potential impact on the labor market if they become law, and she argues that they would ultimately hurt workers rather than help them.
Be sure to tune in next week as AAF President Douglas Holtz-Eakin and labor policy expert Michael Lotito will take a closer look at the PRO Act’s provisions. Stay up to date with the latest episodes of The AAF Exchange here!
