Majority Leader Schumer Statement On The Nomination Of Julie Su To Be The Next Labor Secretary

Washington, D.C.   Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) released the following statement regarding President Biden’s nomination of Julie Su to be the next Labor Secretary:

“As a proven fighter for American workers, Julie Su will be a phenomenal Labor Secretary. Julie has been on the frontlines of protecting workers’ rights as a veteran litigator for years. From helping place people in good paying jobs, to fighting doggedly to combat wage theft, Julie learned the ins and outs of labor firsthand. I look forward to working with her on key issues for American workers, like updating the outdated overtime rule to pay workers what they’ve earned, training and connecting workers to good-paying jobs, and ensuring that workers are protected in the workplace. The Senate will work quickly to consider her nomination.”
