Gina Raimondo, Biden’s commerce secretary pick, assures jobless Keystone workers

Gina Raimondo, President Joe Biden’s nominee for secretary of commerce, vowed that the government will ensure that union workers who lost jobs due to the blocking of the Keystone XL oil pipeline will get new jobs. She said this in her reply after Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) raised the issue during Raimondo’s confirmation hearing. Biden revoked a key permit for the pipeline soon after taking office.

The CORRUPT COMMUNIST DEMOCRAPS will shift highly skilled union workers from their $40-$60 per hour jobs to the new DEMOCRAP 'DREAM' of $15 per hour for everyone. Disgusting DEMOCRAPS are KNOWN JOB KILLERS!
