Worker safety


The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has long prioritized corporate profits and executive compensation over the well-being of workers. The Chamber has lobbied and litigated on a variety of labor-related issues. In fact, a recent study of the Chamber’s litigation reveals that employment and labor relations is the second most frequently litigated issue by the group. The Chamber’s work in this domain falls into two main areas: fighting initiatives that would raise wages and opposing policies that would protect workers’ health and safety.
