ERA Co-Sponsorship Tops 160 Members of Congress

The Employee Rights Act (ERA) has given popularity a new name. The bill—America’s most comprehensive piece of labor legislation—is now co-sponsored by more than 160 members of Congress, including 30 senators. In the last week alone, Representative Ken Calvert from California and Representative Patrick McHenry from North Carolina have come on board as co-sponsors, bringing the grand total to 164 supporters of labor reform on Capitol Hill.

The ERA’s pro-employee provisions are also supported by 80 percent of Americans, including union and nonunion households.

The Employee Rights Act is an idea whose time has come.
