McCarthy Statement on House Passage of the Workforce Democracy & Fairness Act
Washington D.C. – Congressman Kevin McCarthy released the following statement following passage of the Workforce Democracy & Fairness Act (H.R. 3094):
"The House Republican jobs agenda is designed to get people back to work and end Washington's overregulation of the private sector, which has created even more uncertainty for America's job creators and put hiring on hold. The regulatory agenda of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) continues to ignore policies that would best grow our economy and spur job creation. The new election rules proposed by the NLRB will limits the rights of both employees and employers by restricting their ability to make an informed decision during elections. Washington's focus must be on how best to grow our economy in order to put the fourteen million Americans who are unemployed back to work, not furthering the agenda of a partisan special interest group."
