Oregon businesses facing a “real serious challenge”

May 13, 2021

House Democrats proudly claimed the American Rescue Plan would put “workers back on the job.”

Instead, the bill that Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader drafted and voted for is leading to a workforce shortage by paying Americans more money not to work.

Ben Roche, Oregon Manufactured Housing Association Director, discussed fighting this challenge saying, “As we increase our wages to try to be competitive with other industries to draw those workers to our place of employment, then we’re competing with people who are considering unemployment as a career choice.”

Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader’s socialist agenda isn’t putting people back on the job, it’s destroying Oregon businesses and the economy.
