Here’s another piece on Secretary of Labor and rising star Tom Perez, who I very much hope Clinton picks as the vice-presidential candidate.
My favorite part is why conservatives hate him.
“Our members are frustrated with Secretary Perez,” said Jack Mozloom, a spokesman for the National Federation of Independent Business, which represents 325,000 businesses with fewer than 10 employees. “He has been very aggressive with the overtime rule,” which Mozloom thinks will lead to employers to cut back hours. “He too frequently gives the labor community whatever they want.”
Let me get out my tiny violin. Actually ensuring that workers get paid justly for their work, what an outrage. No wonder Limbaugh compares him to Hugo Chavez.
If Perez doesn’t get the VP slot, he would make a fantastic Attorney General.
