Forced to pay union dues

---------- Forwarded message ---------

President Joe Biden promised to not increase taxes on the middle-class, but his gift to organized labor, the Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act), has the same impact as a tax increase on millions of Americans. The PRO Act does not protect anyone's right to organize; those rights already exist. Quite the opposite, it strips employees of their right to not associate with a union and forces them to annually pay hundreds of dollars to unions against their will.

Currently, people living in Right to Work states and working for a unionized private-sector company are not required to join the union or pay dues. 

But Biden and House and Senate Democrats want to strip private-sector Americans of their right to choose and compel expensive union membership in companies that are unionized. (Public-sector employees would still enjoy right-to-work protections due to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in the Janus v. AFSCME case.)

The rationale behind the PRO Act is simple. says unions poured $27.6 million into Biden's campaign, and he wants to repay them by forcing millions of Americans to pay them dues or agency fees.
