Transition plan

Biden and I are ready to write the next chapter in our nation’s history. On Day 1, we’re going to get to start building an economy that works for working families.

Tackling Covid-19 pandemic, economic recovery, racial equality and climate change are the four top priorities the Biden team listed on its website on Sunday, a day after the Democrat leaders won the bitter and closely fought November 3 presidential election, billed as one of the most divisive in the recent American history.

“Biden and I are ready to write the next chapter in our nation’s history,” Harris said in a tweet on Monday.

“On Day 1, we’re going to get to work building an economy that works for working families,” she said, listing out the priorities of the Biden-Harris administration.

As Biden’s Vice-President, Harris, 56, will make history in myriad ways, becoming the first woman, and the first woman of colour to occupy the office. According to the Economic Recovery of the Transition, President-elect Biden believes to his core that there’s no greater economic engine in the world than the hard work and ingenuity of the American people.

“Nobody has more respect for the working women and men who get up every day to build and sustain this country, or more confidence that they can meet the challenges we face. The Biden-Harris administration will rebuild the middle class — and this time make sure everyone comes along,” it said.

In this time of crisis, Biden has a plan to create millions of good-paying jobs, make it easier for workers to organise unions and collectively bargain, and to give America’s working families the tools, choices, and freedom they need to build back better, it said.

“Implementing Biden’s comprehensive strategy to get the pandemic under control and effectively reopen the economy is one of the President-elect’s top priorities,” the transition said. — PTI
