Fred Keller to Newsmax TV: PRO Act Inserts Government Into Employee-Employer Relationship

("American Agenda"/ Newsmax TV)

By    |   Wednesday, 10 March 2021 05:42 PM

Rep. Fred Keller, R-Pa.., told Newsmax TV on Wednesday that the Protect the Right to Organize Act, or PRO Act, “inserts government into the employee-employer relationship," and said that there "should be a right not to organize."

He added, on “American Agenda,” that the bill “makes the assumption that employers don't care about the people that work in their businesses. And there's one thing I learned working in a factory is that workers care about where they work, and employers care about the people that come to work every day and get the job done and they value them very much, and there should be a right not to organize if you choose not to.”

Keller later said that the amendment he proposed “was to prevent intermittent strikes, which in the past, before the National Labor Relations Board, you know, had some rulings and really were disruptive to the economy, and consumers, and getting things produced. My amendment, I was looking to improve the bill, as as many other people were or make it less-worse. I don't know that you could have could have made it better, but you could make it less-worse. And no, I wasn't supporting this at all, I'm just trying to make sure that this way the government aren't (sic) putting the middleman in between the employee and employer.”

The congressman also ripped the COVID-19 relief bill that passed the House on Wednesday, saying that “we're gonna ask Americans from across this nation to pay for their bad policies like buying drugs and alcohol for homeless people. Those aren't policies that America had any say in, and yet they're gonna fund that and many other policies in poorly-run states, and $12 billion going to foreign governments. I don't know how that helps Americans and I don't know how that's related to recovery.”
