House Republicans are demanding that President Biden withdraw his nominee for Secretary of Labor, Julie Su. The group is concerned about Su’s track record, which they say includes “continual failure” and “harming California’s workforce.”
Led by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith and House Education Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx, the Republicans are urging Biden to choose someone who is up to the task of healing the economy and bolstering the workforce. They warn that Su’s nomination would be a “disaster for workers and our economy.”
The Republicans also take issue with Su’s support of California Assembly Bill 5, which they say restricts Americans’ right to work as independent contractors and weakens supply chains. They argue that similar policies at the federal level would be detrimental to the country’s economic recovery.
As we continue to navigate the challenges of rebuilding our economy after the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s critical that we have leaders in place who are capable of rising to the occasion.
The House Republicans’ letter to President Biden serves as a reminder that the American people deserve leaders who are up to the task of creating good-paying jobs and strengthening the workforce.
