After weeks of delay, wild-goose chases and unfounded accusations, Rep. Hilda Solis is expected to get a confirmation vote by the full Senate tomorrow to become our next secretary of labor. There's still a chance that anti-worker senators will try more nonsense to block her appointment, so please make your voice heard now. Contact your senators and urge them to vote for Hilda Solis. Lost in all the Washington procedural mumbo-jumbo since the Solis nomination is the recognition that this is truly a historic moment for all of America's workers. She is a true champion of America's workers. Solis will not be your boss's secretary of labor -- she will be YOUR secretary of labor. As the child of working class immigrants who both were members of labor unions in California, Hilda Solis is uniquely qualified to lead the Department of Labor during the current economic crisis. With hundreds of thousands of jobs being lost every week and millions of Americans struggling to make ends meet, we desperately need someone who will fight for America's workers, not just the interests of CEOs. As secretary of labor, Solis will be responsible for ensuring that workers have safe jobs, freedom from employment discrimination, unemployment insurance, enforcement of minimum wage laws and much, much more. A labor secretary can't fix everything, but it sure will be nice to have someone in charge who actually cares about workers. Please contact your senators and urge them to vote for confirmation of Hilda Solis as labor secretary -- no more wasting time. In Solidarity, Marc Laitin Online Mobilization Coordinator, AFL-CIO P.S. Don't forget, 78 percent of Americans support workers' freedom to form a union and bargain for a better life. Isn't it about time we had a secretary of labor who shares that position? Please contact your senators today and urge them to confirm Hilda Solis.
