Working Lunch: The PRO Act, organized labor’s ultimate wish, passes in the U.S. House

Plus, a look at the restaurant industry’s financial outlook

This week on the Working Lunch podcast, the team from Align Public Strategies is joined by two guests. Phil Wilson from the Labor Relations Institute comes on to discuss organized labor’s most important piece of legislation to pass the U.S. House in generations, the PRO Act. The group discusses the bill’s chances of passing in the Senate, and if unsuccessful, which parts could be enacted by regulation. More importantly, Wilson talks about the ramifications for employers and what they need to know.

Wilson also gives some insight into the Amazon unionization vote underway in Alabama, and regardless of the outcome, what it means to both the labor and business communities.

The podcast is then once again joined by Michael Halen of Bloomberg Intelligence, who shares his insights on how major brands are faring during the pandemic, who was able to innovate to not only survive but thrive, and what the financial outlook is going forward for the restaurant industry. The episode wraps up with the legislative scorecard.
