FreedomWorks Statement on Senate Confirmation Hearing for Labor Secretary Nominee Julie Su

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to today’s Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee hearing to confirm Labor Secretary nominee Julie Su, Cesar Ybarra, FreedomWorks Vice President of Policy, commented:

“Based on Ms. Su’s record in public service, we are deeply concerned about the potential of her leadership of the U.S. Department of Labor, a critical agency that regulates employers and employees nationwide. We are alarmed that Ms. Su’s anti-small business record shows that she will likely stretch the law, rather than enforce the law, in a manner that would shutter small businesses and increase costs for consumers, especially as the economy continues to struggle. We respectfully ask the Senate to oppose the nomination of Julie Su to be Secretary of Labor.”
