Murray Statement On Weil Confirmation Vote

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, released the following statement after the Senate failed to confirm David Weil as Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division at the U.S. Department of Labor.

 

“I'm incredibly disappointed to see Dr. Weil, an exceptionally qualified nominee with a long track record fighting to ensure workers get the wages they have earned, did not get the votes tonight to be confirmed as Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor. Despite this outcome, I will never stop fighting for working families and for a fully staffed DOL with leaders committed to protecting workers.”
