The ERA Enjoys Widespread Support

Presidential candidates are lining up to support the Employee Right Act’s common-sense reforms, which would democratize the workplace and force union bosses to (finally) listen to their members.

The list now includes Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, and Marco Rubio among others. 

But, the ERA isn’t just some Republican talking point. It enjoys widespread support across the political spectrum. More than 80 percent of self-identified Democrats and independents support the majority of ERA provisions, according to ORC International polling data. This includes Hispanics and African-Americans, who have thrown themselves behind the ERA by an 80-20 margin—and these are not your typical GOP primary voters.
