The poster shows Solis walking arm in arm with Rev. Al Sharpton with Rev. Jesse Jackson nearby, and includes this quote from Solis: “Whether we take to the streets or simply do our work with integrity and commitment here at the U.S. Department of Labor, we are all marching toward the same goals: safer workplaces, fair pay, dignity on the job, secure retirement and opportunities to make a better life. I believe in the power of collective action.”
Walsh wrote to Solis: "Some employees that have remained anonymous have described these posters as 'propaganda' and I agree. The sign is both contrary to the role of your department and a misuse of taxpayer funds. Your job is not to inject yourself into politics - especially not by promoting your own political stance through a poster paid for by the taxpayer."
