Firstly, by creating punitive remedies and civil fines, the Act would make it costlier for employers to violate the NLRA and change the economics of bargaining versus not bargaining with employees. Secondly, the injunction power and the private right of action address the issues of employers delaying proceedings and thereby harming workers further and allows workers to become interested in pursing their own grievances. Additionally, by providing workers with double liquidated damages for discharge and other serious economic harm, the Act addresses other economic losses not covered by the Act, and gives more incentive for workers to pursue actions against employers violating the laws. This would also largely put a stop to courts limiting the remedies provided for by the
Sixty years ago, unions effected the lives of nearly all Americans. Unions negotiated the wages and working conditions of a large portion of the American work force and even influenced the wages of many non-union workers as well.
