In September 2020, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden promised organised labour that, if elected, he would be the “strongest labour president you’ve ever had”. 

In his first 100 days in office, now President Biden has acted quickly and aggressively to make good on this pledge. Some of these efforts have quickly come to fruition; the fate of others remains unclear, and are likely to require congressional approval – no certainty in a Congress where both the House of Representatives and Senate are operating with historically narrow margins.
