It’s difficult to imagine a worse candidate for Labor Secretary of the United States than Julie Su. But somehow, the idea of her leading the Labor Department has become a very realistic possibility.
Su is considered one of a handful of front runners to become President Biden’s Secretary of Labor as he considers who should replace outgoing Secretary Marty Walsh. As the current Deputy Secretary of Labor, Su seems like the natural successor.
But after nearly destroying California’s Employment Development Department (EDD) and refusing to take responsibility for her actions, there is no one less worthy of promotion than Su.
For those who did not suffer under Su’s reign in California, here are just a few of Su’s most shocking failures:
Despite all these failures, Su was still promoted to deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor. But it’s time for Su to stop failing upwards.
Many in Washington are sounding the alarms that Su must not be promoted. Several members of California’s congressional delegation signed a letter urging Biden against choosing Su, including Reps. Darrell Issa, Jay Obernolte, Young Kim, Tom McClintock, Ken Calvert, and Mike Garcia.
Californians are still dealing with the mess Su made. We can’t let her take the reins in Washington. Biden must pick someone — anyone! — beside Su.
