Watch live: Biden gives remarks on union labor and West Coast ports
President Biden is speaking Wednesday from the Port of Los Angeles following the recent contract agreement for workers at West Coast ports. The deal firms up a tentative bargain with employers reached in June providing a significant pay raise to 22,000 International Longshore and Warehouse Union laborers, Reuters reported.
Biden, who is scheduled to attend the G20 summit in New Delhi later this week, has been highlighting his administration’s economic policies. In a Labor Day speech, he drew a contrast between jobs numbers since he’s taken office and those under former President Trump.
The president is scheduled to speak at 2:15 p.m. EDT.
