AFJ: Tom Perez will be an outstanding Secretary of Labor

Alliance for Justice President Nan Aron released the following statement today in response to the Senate vote to confirm Tom Perez as Secretary of Labor: 

The new Secretary of Labor:
Tom Perez
We are pleased that the Senate voted to confirm President Obama’s choice to run the Department of Labor. Tom Perez will be an outstanding Secretary of Labor.  He has spent his professional career in public service, committed to ensuring a fairer and more just society.  His confirmation is an important step in the fight for the preservation of the fundamental  rights of working Americans.

This must be only the beginning.  The Senate also should confirm the President's nominees for the National Labor Relations Board and the Environmental Protection Agency.  And it must move swiftly to confirm the president's nominees for the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and all federal courts.
