This morning I read two short commentaries about Hilda Solis’s confirmation troubles. I don’t have much to add other than I hope that she crosses the hurdle and is sworn in soon. Courtesy of the HuffPo and Mario Solis-Marich, you can learn more here, or you can read an even shorter explanation at feministing. More importantly, why does the GOP want to obstruct a nominee who supports a basic level of worker’s rights? Hilda Solis is committed to getting this country working again and promoting green economy jobs. It is time that we restore a basic level of respect for the American worker.
