Owens Co-Sponsors the Employee Rights Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) co-sponsored the Employee Rights Act of 2023. The bill seeks to modernize our nation’s labor policies to match the needs of the 21st-century worker and workforce. This legislation represents the Republican vision for the future of the American workforce: promoting growth and innovation, ensuring that our laws protect workers rather than union bosses, and allowing Americans to take home more of the money they earn.
“Hard-working families, small business owners, and independent contractors in Utah and across the nation depend on flexible and stable work options,” said Rep. Owens. “The pro-union and anti-growth policies of the Biden administration have dampened job growth, denied workers their freedom to choose their work structure, and exacerbated inflation for consumers. I am proud to support the Employee Rights Act to reverse burdensome regulations, empower the workforce, and curb the corruptive power of union bosses.”
