Stop The PRO Act
Unions and their allies are promoting a bill that would destabilize America’s workplaces and impose a long list of dangerous changes to labor law.

In the world of labor and employment policy, it is a well-known fact that organized labor has been hemorrhaging members for the past 65 years, and labor leaders have sought innumerable ways to reverse that trend. Since peaking at roughly 35% of the workforce in the 1950s, union membership has steadily declined. In 2018, it stood at just 10.5% of the workforce, with a mere 6.4% membership rate in the private sector.
