Rep. Solis to Labor Dept. – A Win for Workers

President-elect Barack Obama has nominated California Democrat Hilda Solis to be Labor secretary. This is a great pick for working Americans, the labor movement, and progressives.

I have a post of on SEIU’s blog that goes into Solis’s labor record in some depth, especially her forceful advocacy for the Employee Free Choice Act. You can read the post here. It’s worth noting that though I’ve been working at SEIU for three months, this is the first opportunity I’ve had to contribute to the blog. I’m glad to do it in such an exciting moment.
