Help Move Georgia Forward
This week, Secretaries Xavier Becerra, Janet Yellen, and Pete Buttigieg traveled to Georgia to highlight how President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda is bringing good-paying jobs to the Peach State, providing direct relief to Georgians who need it most, and revitalizing our economy from the impacts of the pandemic.
On Tuesday, labor leaders from the Atlanta North Georgia Labor Council, Amalgamated Transit Union Chapter 732, and the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists – Metro Atlanta Chapter released letters sent to Georgia’s Republican members of Congress urging them to put aside partisan politics and support the historic investments in President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal.
Throughout the week, Georgians saw coverage of how the American Rescue Plan — passed by Democrats and opposed by every single Georgia Republican — is continuing to uplift their communities and how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will provide much needed improvements and crucial job gains in our state.
