Americans for Hilda Solis as Secretary of Labor

Hi All,

As per the suggestion of Tula Connell, AFL-CIO Managing Editor, I've created the Facebook Group:

"Americans for Hilda Solis as Secretary of Labor"

We support a swift Senate confirmation of Hilda Solis as Secretary of Labor.The mission of the Department of Labor is to foster and promote the welfare of U.S. employees and retirees by improving their working conditions and protecting their benefits, helping employers find workers and strengthening free collective bargaining. We believe Hilda Solis is the best choice to lead and inspire the 16,600 Department of Labor employees in support of the rights of working Americans.

The U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions held its confirmation hearing for Secretary of Labor-Designate Hilda Solis on January 9, 2009. Go to the link blow to view the question and answer portion of the hearing.

Comments appreciated. Calls, e-mails, and letters to your U.S. Senators would be even better. Join "Americans for Hilda Solis as Secretary of Labor" on Facebook and post statements of support.
