WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 — The Coalition to Save Local Businesses (CSLB), which represents more than 3 million small businesses, organizations, and associations, applauds the U.S. House of Representatives for today’s passage of HR 3441, the “Save Local Business Act,” by Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL). The bipartisan bill would clarify many of the confusing regulations within the expanded joint employer rule, providing certainty for small business owners while strengthening protections for American workers.
By Ben Gitis | The Hill | While most headlines focus on Republican efforts to create jobs and raise wages through tax reform, another effort vital to the future of the American labor force is well underway. The House of Representatives will soon vote on the Save Local Business Act, a bill that would address the National Labor Relations Board’s problematic decision to expand the joint employer doctrine. If the NLRB’s decision remains in effect, small businesses will likely suffer, and workers could ultimately pay the price.
By Rep. Bradley Byrne & Rep. Henry Cuellar | Morning Consult | Republicans and Democrats don’t always agree on how to promote economic growth and opportunity. But the American people are counting on us to find common ground wherever we can.
