WASHINGTON — Organized labor was in the spotlight Friday on Capitol Hill as a Senate panel considered the nomination of a pro-labor advocate for Secretary of Labor and the House passed two bills addressing pay discrimination.
Labor’s top legislative priority — a bill that would make it easier for workers to organize a union — was a central focus of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions’ confirmation hearing of Rep. Hilda Solis (D., Calif.) as Labor Secretary. The full Senate must vote to confirm Solis, who would be the first Latina in the post.
