"That's what the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces executive order that took effect last August ensures. There is nothing controversial about it. Lawmakers should want workers to receive the paychecks they earn, be safe on the job and not be discriminated against.
"Taxpayer money should not be handed to companies that blatantly violate labor and workplace laws. If elected representatives are as truly interested in standing up for workers as they claim, they will stop efforts to overturn rules that protect employee pay and ensure workers can provide for their families."
