This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved
a number of nominees that threaten to erode
legal protections on everything ranging from workplace rights
to affordable healthcare. Included was the nomination of William Barr to be the next Attorney General
of the United States. Barr has demonstrated that
he cannot be counted on to uphold the principles of
justice and equality for all. AFSCME called on Senators to reject him
when he is voted on next week.
