July 18, 2019

Washington, D.C. – Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the nomination of Eugene Scalia to be U.S. Labor Secretary.

“President Trump is missing an opportunity to nominate a fighter for workers, like a union member, to be America’s next Labor Secretary.  Instead, President Trump has again chosen someone who has proven to put corporate interests over those of worker rights. Workers and union members who believed candidate Trump when he campaigned as pro-worker should feel betrayed.”
