CWA Statement on the Resignation of Labor Secretary Alex Acosta

Friday, July 12, 2019

It is the job of the Labor Department to enforce laws that protect all workers. The facts that have emerged about Alex Acosta's role in reducing Jeffrey Epstein's sentence for his vile crimes have made it clear that he thinks there is one set of rules for the rich and powerful, and another set for everyone else. This double standard has no role in the Labor Department or any other part of our government, and we welcome his resignation.
