FreedomWorks Statement in Response to the Confirmation of Julie Su to be Deputy Secretary of Labor

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the Senate confirming Julie A. Su to be Deputy Secretary of the Labor Department, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“The confirmation of Julie Su to be Deputy Secretary of Labor is just the latest example of President Biden packing his administration to the brim with radicals. As head of California’s Labor and Workforce Development Agency, she led the charge on AB 5, which devastated independent contractors and many firms in the gig economy.

“Just as Julie Su failed to effectively manage unemployment in California, we can only expect that she will fail to adequately address rampant unemployment across the United States that resulted from COVID-19 lockdowns.”
