Hilda Solis resigns as labor secretary

Source: Washington Post



Labor Secretary Hilda Solis has resigned, opening another spot in President Obama’s Cabinet.

Announcing the resignation in a statement on Monday, Obama hailed Solis as “a tireless champion for working families” during “the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.” The president said that “her efforts have helped train workers for the jobs of the future, protect workers’ health and safety and put millions of Americans back to work.”

Solis’s resignation, following the resignation of Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson and the withdrawal of Susan Rice from consideration for secretary of state, adds to the issue of racial and gender diversity in Obama’s second-term Cabinet.

White House aides said, however, that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki and Attorney General Eric Holder will remain with the administration in their current posts.
