Pennsylvania Republicans Push to 'Protect' Paychecks...from Higher Salaries and Benefits

January 29, 2014

Pennsylvania Republicans are pushing falsely titled "paycheck protection" legislation that would take away rights from workers and keep them from having good wages and benefits. The legislation would hamper workers’ ability to organize unions and represent themselves in negotiations with employers, leaving them open to any number of assaults on salary, benefits and working conditions. The legislation would prevent the deduction of union dues from public employee paychecks and is supported by groups related to the infamous Koch brothers, wealthy extremists who are behind many attacks against working families across the nation.
