Obama's Sec. of Labor nominee "sends a clear message that our nation is looking out for the most vulnerable workers" http://www.jwj.org/statement-nomination-tom-perez-us-secretary-labor
“We’re pleased that President Obama has nominated Tom Perez -- a strong advocate for working Americans, particularly low-wage, and immigrant workers -- to lead the Department of Labor. This choice sends a clear message that the administration is looking out for our nation's most vulnerable workers. Given Perez’s serious credentials, we urge Congress to pursue a swift confirmation process so the agency can move forward with its agenda and implement critical policies, including the proposed rule extending minimum wage, overtime and other FLSA rights to the 2.5 million caregivers working without labor protections in the United States."

@araw "Low wage immigrant workers" have reason to rejoice. Maybe blacks should learn an accent.
