WASHINGTON–U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), a member of the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, on Tuesday released the following statement after meeting with nominee for Secretary of Labor, Deputy Secretary of Labor Julie Su:

“As Deputy Secretary of Labor, Julie Su worked closely with Secretary Walsh to create a record-breaking number of good-paying jobs and ensure workers have the skills they need to succeed through the expansion of workforce development programs. I was glad to meet with her today to discuss her work throughout her career to protect workers’ rights  and strengthen our economy. She is eminently qualified for this new post, and I’m hopeful for her swift confirmation as Secretary of Labor.”
