 Trump’s Labor Nominee, Alexander Acosta, Is More Dangerous than You Think

Christopher D. Cook

Overshadowed by the high-octane wars over the Affordable Care Act and Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, the confirmation of Labor Secretary nominee Alexander Acosta is cruising toward a March 30 Senate committee vote with little fanfare. Yet Acosta’s acquiescence to President Trump’s labor agenda holds frightful if unheralded consequences for America’s workers, millions of them Trump supporters.

If Trump wanted to do something radical and useful he would make the position of Labor Secretary an elected position so that the Labor Secretary would have no doubt as to he/she was representing and needed to answer to.

Working people supporting Trump are analogous to chickens supporting Col. Sanders!
