    PRO ACT WOULD CAUSE MORE SUPPLY CHAIN, WORKFORCE CHAOS

    July 6, 2022 // The problem with the President’s position on the PRO Act is that it cuts completely against his mission to ensure supply chain resilience. Specifically, the PRO Act would allow for secondary activity including picketing, strikes, and boycotts directed at neutral third parties that are not involved in a labor dispute.
