Key Vote Alert – House – “YES” on H.J. Res 98, Providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the rule submitted by the National Labor Relations Board relating to “Standard for Determining Joint Employer Status”
The Club for Growth urges all Representatives to vote YES on H.J. Res 98, Providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the rule submitted by the National Labor Relations Board relating to “Standard for Determining Joint Employer Status.” The results of this vote will be included in the Club for Growth Foundation’s 2024 congressional scorecard.
The Biden Administration’s radical Joint Employer Rule is a direct threat to the hundreds of thousands of small businesses operating as franchises across the United States. Requiring franchisors to be responsible for the employment decisions of each individual franchise will dramatically increase liability risks and regulatory costs. According to the International Franchise Association, the Obama-era version of this rule led to a 93% increase in lawsuits, increased regulatory costs for franchise businesses by $33 billion and destroyed 376,000 jobs. It is clear that this rule will reduce entrepreneurship, kill jobs and stifle growth. Club for Growth urges all members to support H.J. Res 98 and rescind the Biden Administration’s assault on small business.
Club for Growth Foundation’s Congressional Scorecard for the 118th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to the public.
