Foxx: President Biden is a Golden Goose to Union Bosses
WASHINGTON, D.C., February 4, 2022
Today, Education and Labor Committee Republican Leader Virginia Foxx (R-NC) released the following statement after President Biden issued his latest Executive Order that requires burdensome project labor agreements on federal construction projects above $35 million:
“Union bosses don’t need to visit a casino with the hopes of winning a jackpot – they’ve got President Biden to hand-deliver one to them yet again. It speaks volumes that this president has become so tightly wrapped around the little fingers of union bosses that he no longer cares about the consequences of his actions—respect for contractors, skilled workers, and taxpayers be damned.
“Project labor agreements are corrosive to the great American workforce. You don’t need to peer into a crystal ball to find out what will happen next. Fewer construction projects. Fewer infrastructure improvements. More bloated costs. Bureaucracy growing like a weed. Shame on President Biden for putting the interests of his union allies over the priorities of the hardworking men and women in the construction industry—the vast majority of whom choose not to join a union.”
