  1. It is almost unbelievable that Julie Su could be tapped by Pres. Biden to serve as the Deputy Sec’y of Labor on a national level until one realizes that this is what the Democrats do – they put incompetents in charge. Julie Su is the very same one who led California’s EDD department & let over 11 billion dollars be stolen by fraudsters – including many behind bars in the Calif. prison system. I personally know people who have waited almost a year for their unemployment – being denied time after time and are still waiting for their appeal to be approved while prisoners bogus applications & payments sailed through the system in record time. I suppose I should be saying good riddance but I have a hard time believing Gov Newsom won’t find someone equally incompentent to replace her.
