(March 23, 2021, MILWAUKEE WI) – Stephanie Bloomingdale, President of the Wisconsin AFL-CIO, released the following statement on Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson voting against confirming Marty Walsh as Labor Secretary.
“Wisconsin’s unhinged anti-worker Senator Ron Johnson delivered another slap in the face to working families with his vote against President Biden’s Secretary of Labor nominee Marty Walsh. Fortunately, unlike Senator Johnson, 18 Republican lawmakers joined every Democratic Senator in confirming Secretary Walsh.
As the first Labor Secretary to come from our union movement in 40 years, Marty Walsh will restore the Department of Labor’s pro-worker mission.
Congratulations to Secretary Walsh and the millions of American workers he will fight for.”
