Trump to Nominate Eugene Scalia for Labor Secretary Job

Source: New York Times

resident Trump said he would name Eugene Scalia as his next secretary of labor, tapping the son of the former Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia for a position with vast responsibility over the American work force.

The appointment is likely to be contested by Democrats and labor unions because Mr. Scalia has a long record of representing employers like Walmart and questioning regulations intended to help workers. He was a former top lawyer for the Labor Department in the George W. Bush administration and is currently a partner in the Washington office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.

In a post on Twitter, Mr. Trump said Mr. Scalia “has led a life of great success in the legal and labor field and is highly respected.”

3. Well, I suppose this is better than nominating him for a federal judge

At least it isn't lifetime.
