Labor chair Merav Michaeli uploads a video to TikTok in which she explains why she always wears all-black outfits.

“Do you ever ask why [news anchor] Danny Cushmaro wears a black suit vs. a gray suit? You don’t even notice.”

“Who cares that I wear all black?!”

“I want people to listen to what I have to say and notice what I do, rather than talking about what I wear. That’s why I wear all black,” she says.
