Senate voted 80-17 to confirm Hilda Solis as President Obama's Secretary of Labor
24 Feb 2009
Hilda Solis Confirmed YES!

The Department of Management Will Now Be Known as the Department of Workers Rights!
Dear Employee Free Choice Act Now . Org,

I am pleased to report that earlier today, the Senate voted 80-17 to confirm Hilda Solis as President Obama's Secretary of Labor. I strongly supported her confirmation.

Secretary Solis comes from a proud union family, and has been fighting for the rights of workers her entire career. She understands the difficult issues facing our economy, and I have every confidence that she will work tirelessly at the Labor Department to make sure working families are not left behind.

At a time when we have 11 million workers unemployed in America, it is inexcusable that her nomination was held up due to partisan politics. I am glad the Senate was finally able to move her nomination forward, and I look forward to working with her on the issues that are so important to Michigan's working families.

As always, please don't hesitate to contact my office if we can be of assistance to you or your family.


Debbie Stabenow

United States Senator
