Workforce Fairness Institute Launches Congressional Scorecard
Online Grading System Serves As Means To Ensure Lawmakers Stand Up For Workers & Oppose Government Intrusion In Workplaces
Washington, D.C. – The Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) today announced that it has launched a Congressional scorecard for the purpose of ensuring federal elected officials are standing up for worker freedom and against government intrusion in workplaces across the country. The scorecard reflects WFI’s organizational commitment to educating voters, employers, employees and citizens about issues affecting the workplace and how they are being addressed on Capitol Hill.
The scorecard will be updated routinely based on legislative activity in the U.S. House and Senate. Each Member of Congress will receive a score at the conclusion of the current session and will continue to be scored based on co-sponsorships and votes on key legislation affecting the American workplace.
“The Workforce Fairness Institute’s Congressional Scorecard is an effort to reverse the mess of the last decade, bring the law back into balance and foster measures that will make workplace democracy a reality, while also protecting the legitimate interests of employers and unions,” said Heather Greenaway, spokesperson for the Workforce Fairness Institute. “This tool will be the means by which workers and businesses, whose interests have been ignored, are able to measure whether their elected officials in Washington simply talk the talk or actually walk the walk. It’s incumbent upon our elected officials to promote good policy and roll back bad policy, fostering a regulatory environment where workers’ freedoms are protected and the businesses that hire them can thrive.”
