Is the Pro Act really Pro Labor?
March 31, 2021
Hosted by Darren Yancy
Join Darren and his guests Lee & Lisa Schmitt from Trucking Across America with the Schmitts on how the Pro Act, currently in review in Congress now, may wipe out an entire sector of jobs in the US economy. This bill could eliminate those that choose to work for themselves as independent contractors and be forced to accept lower paying jobs and pay union dues against their will. While this bill will touch thousands of areas of work, one of the more devastating would be its impact on the trucking sector as most truck drivers are IC's. Darren will explain how this directly impacts your wallet, your lifestyle, and your choices of work in the future.
