Congressman Steve Rothman (NJ-9) released the following statement on his vote for an amendment in support of project labor agreements introduced by Congressman Michael Grimm (NY-13) on May 31, 2012:

I will continue to fight for project labor agreements (PLAs) to ensure that every worker has access to healthcare, a fair wage, and pension benefits. In the greatest, most prosperous country on earth, we must treat our workers with respect and give them the compensation that they deserve.

Congress must find more ways to support American workers instead of the Republicans' efforts to undercut successful and important labor rights, which help our economy and support our nation's families.
