For four years, the Department of Labor has been devoted to serving a handful of elite interests, instead of working people.
The Senate just confirmed Marty Walsh as labor secretary. We congratulate our proud union brother. He understands the power of collective action, and his confirmation strengthens our fight to improve the lives of working people across the country.
We’re going to protect workers from COVID-19.
We’re going to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour.
We’re going to build 21st-century infrastructure and create a new generation of good-paying union jobs.
And above all, we’ll finally protect our right to organize by passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act.
Finally, we want to thank everyone for sending letters and calling their senators about Secretary Walsh’s confirmation. This victory is yours.
