Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA), a co-chair of the House Democratic Caucus Jobs with Dignity Task Force, asked six U.S. companies noted for their excellence in workers’ compensation programs to share their best practices to help guide discussion on ways Congress can improve employee benefits for hard-working men and women.

“The Jobs With Dignity Task Force is focused on delivering results for the middle class, and an obvious way to do that is encouraging businesses to replicate pro-worker practices which are already successful,” said Rep. Beyer. “Companies which deliver competitive benefits, wages, and strong retirement plans have much to offer by way of example, and Congress should do more to promote good corporate policies.”

By restoring the traditional employment benefits enjoyed by previous generations, the Jobs with Dignity Task Force will develop ideas to raise wages and increase profit-sharing, stand up for workers’ rights and benefits, and provide genuine financial and retirement security to all Americans.

“Americans deserve good-paying jobs that provide the benefits necessary to support their families and retire with dignity,” said House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY). “With the leadership of Rep. Beyer, I’m confident in House Democrats’ ability to develop policies that will improve the quality of life for all American workers.”

The Jobs with Dignity Task Force is one of five Democratic Caucus Jobs for America Task Forces, all focused on creating opportunities for growth, boosting hardworking families, and giving every worker the opportunity to achieve the American dream by developing legislation focused on investing in key industries. The effort was launched by House Democratic Caucus in September.
