Leading up to the 2020 elections, many political experts and pundits predicted that Democrats would expand their majority in the House of Representatives and take control of the Senate.

Fast forward to a few weeks after the election. While there is a President-Elect Biden, there also will be a much smaller Democratic majority in the House, and the best the Democrats can hope for in the Senate is a 50-50 tie. Ironically enough, it is this closely divided Congress that may give Democrats the best chance of enacting two of their most important policy initiatives on the employment/labor front.
