Protecting America’s Workers Act Introduced. Would Strengthen OSHA and Workers’ Rights

As with past PAWA bills, this version, which has 27 co-sponsors, extends OSHA coverage to public sector employees in those states where they’re not currently covered (as well as federal employees), strengthens anti-retaliation protections for workers, requires the abatement of hazards during contests by employers and toughens criminal penalties.

Thought for the Week

"The context of what’s happening here is an administration that’s hostile to employee rights. This seems deliberate and by design."

–Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-VA) on the weakening of the Merit Systems Protection Board
