Under new Secretary of Labor, new hope for the Labor Dept.

NYHTC — April 05, 2010



President Barack Obama's Secretary of Labor, former U.S. Representative Hilda Solis, has already succeeded in invigorating and reorienting the Department of Labor to a considerable degree. She has assembled a team of dedicated and effective advocates who have spent their careers protecting workers and their rights. Solis has also hired investigators and workers in numbers that give hope for more aggressive enforcement of workers' rights under federal law. Among her key deputies is Labor Solicitor Patricia Smith, the former New York State Commissioner of Labor.
