ALEC’s Legislative Agenda on Jobs

On American Legislative Exchange Council task forces, corporate lobbyists and special interests vote as equals with elected representatives on templates to change our laws, behind closed doors with no press or public allowed to see the votes or deliberations. ALEC’s so-called “jobs” legislation includes proposals that would lower wages, eliminate employee rights, and ship American jobs overseas.

Lowering Wages

Taking Away Employee Rights

Shipping Jobs Overseas
