Washington, D.C. - U.S. Chamber of Commerce Senior Vice President of Employment Policy Glenn Spencer issued the following statement on the Senate HELP Committee's Wednesday hearing:

“Today’s Senate HELP Committee hearing on how to give advantages to union organizers illustrates why voters are frustrated with Congress. Instead of focusing on significant issues that benefit a broad cross section of Americans, we saw a senator using the power of the gavel to aid a narrow special interest, launch unfounded ad hominem attacks on employers, and promote extremely partisan, vindictive, and failed legislation that would punish small businesses and workers. The committee’s time would be better spent on oversight of the National Labor Relations Board, an agency that has abandoned its designated role as a neutral arbiter in resolving labor disputes.”
