Biden’s executive order is expected to cut at least 11 thousand union jobs.
Rep. Bryan Steil (R-Wis.) said he was disgusted by the move.
On Joe Biden’s first day in office he killed thousands of American jobs. He killed hundreds of Wisconsin jobs. Joe Biden needs to reconsider his decision immediately. pic.twitter.com/9G5NhNxZAH
