Contrary to many pundits, President Obama did not nominate a “jobs” person to be the next Secretary of Labor. Instead, the President nominated Tom Perez, a Harvard-educated attorney and current head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. Given Mr. Perez’s education and experience, it is likely that his placement at the top of the DOL will further embolden the OFCCP to continue with their current enforcement strategies and the aggressive pursuit of civil rights violations.
Hold on tight folks . . .
