Today, NetChoice pushed Congress to reject the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act because it threatens workers’ livelihoods within the growing peer-to-peer economy.

“Workers join the peer-to-peer economy because they’re looking for a flexible way to make a living. The PRO Act would restrict the right of self-employment, deny workers’ choice of when and how they want to work, and make it harder for Americans to find work that best serves their family,” said Carl Szabo, Vice President and General Counsel at NetChoice.

“The internet enabled a surge in self-employment through online services like Lyft and Thumbtack, while the PRO Act would wrest control and opportunity away from workers.”
