Washington Alert: Biden’s Pick for Deputy Labor Secretary to Get Hearing March 16

Julie Su, current head of California’s Labor and Workforce Development Agency has been tapped by the Biden administration to be Deputy Labor Secretary under Labor Secretary Nominee Marty Walsh.

Su and Walsh would oversee unemployment insurance, worker safety, job training, and other aspects of the economic recovery. They will also be charged with managing the implementation of the sweeping pro-labor agenda Biden campaigned on, which would increase workplace requirements and make it easier for workers to organize, among other things.


The Senate has scheduled Su’s hearing for March 16th at 10:00 AM EST.
