Over the past two years, the Trump administration has been gradually rolling out changes to federal regulations to give even more power to corporate executives to put profits over people. If Trump's new Labor Secretary pick, Eugene Scalia, is confirmed, we can expect that roll to become a landslide.
Scalia has built up a long record of successfully dismantling regulations put in place to protect workers and consumers. In fact, Wall Street considers him their "secret weapon." If confirmed by the Senate, he will follow the Trump administration's blueprint of weakening employment and health and safety protections for workers in order to further enrich already wealthy CEOs and large shareholders.
Stay tuned for more details on how CWA members will be taking on Scalia's confirmation once hearings are scheduled by the Senate.
