As President, Joe Biden could turn to executive directives to accomplish his labor-policy goals given that Republicans are expected to retain control of the Senate following Jan. 5 runoffs in Georgia, The Wall Street Journal reported. 

Mr. Biden ran on a platform promising empowerment of workers, a higher minimum wage and a greater ability for employees to form or join labor unions. His agenda, though, would face obstacles from a Republican-controlled Senate. 

He could bypass Congress, however, and ease the way for workers to get pay increases and to seek collective-bargaining rights. Much of what a Biden administration prioritizes within that sphere will depend in large part on who he chooses as his Labor Secretary, according to The Journal.
