WFI Applauds U.S. Senate Committee Vote Approving Acosta’s Nomination For Labor Secretary
Washington, D.C. – Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) spokesperson Heather Greenaway released the following statement today in response to the U.S. Senate Committee on Heath, Education, Labor and Pensions’ (HELP) vote on Alexander Acosta’s nomination for U.S. Secretary of Labor:
“We applaud the Senate HELP Committee’s vote today to advance Alexander Acosta’s nomination to the Senate floor. As both a former U.S. Attorney and member of the National Labor Relations Board, Acosta understands the complex labor laws of this nation and has seen firsthand the effects of crippling regulations on jobs and economic growth. He has the record and expertise to bring sanity back to the Department of Labor and reverse years of labor policies that hurt businesses and American workers alike, while rewarding union bosses. We urge the full Senate to act quickly and confirm his nomination.”
