Trump To Nominate Eugene Scalia, Late Supreme Court Justice's Son, As Labor Secretary

President Trump will nominate Eugene Scalia, son of late Justice Antonin Scalia, to be the next Labor Secretary, the president announced via Twitter Thursday evening. A source close to Scalia earlier Thursday confirmed to NPR that the president had offered Scalia the job, and he accepted. Scalia, 55, is a partner at the Washington, D.C., law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, where he handles cases related to labor and employment.

Previously, he served as a special assistant to then and now current Attorney General William Barr in the early 1990s. Scalia also served as the Labor Department's top lawyer, the Solicitor of the U.S. Labor Department, during the George W. Bush administration.

Notably, Wal-Mart hired Scalia in 2005 to defend it against lawsuits from former employees, who said they were fired for calling out wrongdoing within the company.

won't even know what hit them when even more anti-labor policies spew forth. Hey morans, your idol is screwing you over.

Too bad the rest of us have to suffer as well.

7. They aren't worried.

Everyone has worked with people like Trump supporters. They're the only ones who do all the work while everyone else sits on their asses. Because of that, they can name their terms with the boss.

They're also the loudest and most deluded people you ever worked with. When they lose out, they'll blame everyone else.

4. Another Bizarro World appointment by the Racist-Rapist.

Put the fox in charge of the hen house, where is there sanity anymore? It certainly isn't in this admin.

"Notably, Wal-Mart hired Scalia in 2005 to defend it against lawsuits from former employees, who said they were fired for calling out wrongdoing within the company".

6. He worked legal for labor/employment issues

That sounds good on a resume' until you find out which side he worked. He would be more suited to head commerce or the BBB.

Disgusting!

9. Scalia would be welcome in any Republican admin

He served before under GW Bush and is exactly the kind of garden variety conservative, anti-labor Republican that could've been nominated by any R admin. The good news is that anyone serving under Trump will leave with their reputation in tatters.
