Community Town Hall on the Economy
Labor Secretary Hilda Solis spoke to union supporters at a community town hall about economic issues held at the Greater Bethel AME Church in the Overtown neighborhood of Miami. In her first appearance as secretary, she talked about her blue-collar upbringing and promised to step up enforcement of labor laws and increase oversight of pension programs. She criticized the previous administration’s handling of labor issues, saying “there is now a new sheriff in town.” Local union members also talked about their economic problems. close
