DNC Chair Tom Perez and LGBTQ Caucus Chair Earl Fowlkes released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County:
American workers are in crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the lives of millions and thrown our economy into chaos.
As Democrats, we know the middle class is the backbone of our country. That's why, when I was Secretary of Labor under President Obama, we fought like hell for working Americans.
We applaud the everyday Missourians who turned out to vote against this disastrous policy.
Dismantling the Department of Labor is not only an attack on the thousands of dedicated employees who work day and night to level the playing field for everyone in this country, but would leave our workers in limbo.
