Eugene Scalia, the son of late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia, has been chosen by President Donald Trump to serve as the nation’s new Labor Secretary.
He will run a department that administers federal laws and regulations covering 160 million American workers. But America's unions can rest assured, Scalia is a chip off the old block and will do everything in his power to put corporate interests first and strip away the rights of workers.
Scalia is a career corporate lawyer who spent most of his professional life focusing on representing big companies in their fights against consumers, employees and government regulators.
Scalia led the charge against a proposed rule that would have required 401(k) plan managers to act in the best interests of their investors and Clinton-era rules designed to prevent repetitive stress injuries at work.
