Restaurant Association Launches Video to Push for Joint-Employer Reversal

Ad targets 30 congressional districts, encouraging lawmakers to support legislation.

As first reported in Politico’s Morning Shift, The National Restaurant Association is launching a new digital ad that calls on Congress to consider and pass legislation to reverse the NLRB’s “joint employer rule.”

The ad shows how small businesses have been crushed by this ruling and how legislation overturning it will restore fairness in the private sector and help American companies:

According to Politico, the ad will “will run on Facebook and Twitter in House leadership districts — those of House Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, among others — as well as in the districts of members on the House Education and the Workforce Committee.”

Conservative groups and small business advocates have supported a reversal of this rule since it was instituted in 2015 because of the costly burdens that it places on individual companies.
