American Bridge Statement on Trump's Second Labor Secretary Nominee

Feb 16, 2017

American Bridge President Jessica Mackler released the following statement on Donald Trump’s second nominee to be Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta:

“Alexander Acosta’s nomination is proof that Trump doesn’t learn from his mistakes, instead he is doubling down on a failing agenda that will kill U.S. jobs and make it harder for working families to get ahead. After Trump was embarrassed by a Labor nominee whose career was built on violating labor laws, Trump is returning to the same well and nominating a second Secretary of Labor poised to hurt working families and weaken our economy. Acosta’s record demands a thorough vetting and will do nothing to help stabilize an administration already reeling from numerous scandals and embarrassing public defeats.”
