Votes Are In: House passes legislation to prevent a rail strike
The House successfully passed legislation to prevent a rail strike. They adopted a September 15th deal reached between railroad union works, freight rail companies, and the White House.
This includes a pay increase of 24 percent over five years as well as a $5,000 bonus for workers.
They also passed legislation to add 7 days of paid sick leave.
The Senate still has to vote on all of this.
