The “Protecting the Right to Organize” (PRO) Act seeks to boost unions’ power. Like California’s Assembly Bill 5, one of the PRO Act’s stated purposes is to end workers’ use of the Independent Contractor classification for the gig economy. Nevada Congresswoman Susie Lee and Dina Titus voted for it. This law would apply to Uber and Lyft Drivers who are currently listed as independent contractors. There’s an effort on the part of Democrats to destroy the independent worker classification and force everyone to be employees. The law lets gig economy workers including, illegal aliens, to sue for mis-classifying them as independent contractors and not as employees.
