Washington, D.C., September 15, 2011—The Competitive Enterprise Institute started a Labor Policy Scorecard for the 112th Congress on our labor website, WorkplaceChoice.org, earlier this year. CEI experts update the scorecard after each congressional vote on a workers’ rights issue. In the House of Representatives, 159 Members earned 100% pro-worker scores as of Labor Day 2011.
On September 21, CEI will host a ceremony to recognize pro-worker Representatives for their work in advancing sensible labor policies in Washington. Awardees are invited to attend to receive their certificates and for photo opportunities with the policy experts who provide the rankings.
The awards will be given between 1:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 21 in the Cannon House Building.
