Pennsylvania U.S. Senator John Fetterman released the following statement on Thursday after the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Pennsylvania revealed that the percentage of American workers who belong to a union dropped to its lowest rate ever:

“Every worker deserves a union. Unions built the middle class and they built America. It’s time to pass the PRO Act and drastically expand union membership across this country.”

Fetterman is urging the passing of the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, which is intended to drastically expand union membership across the nation. The proposed changes focus on bolstering workers’ rights and providing them with more workplace protection. It would allow for increased regulation over franchises and make it easier for unions to organize new worksites, thus helping to level out income disparity and combat wage stagnation by offering American workers a stronger bargaining power over wages and benefits among other things.
