President-elect Barack Obama’s choice to be labor secretary, Democratic Rep. Hilda Solis of California, is expected to advocate greater union influence in the workplace and more “green” jobs.
Solis, the 51-year-old daughter of a Mexican union shop steward and a Nicaraguan assembly line worker, is in line to be the second Hispanic nominee in Obama’s Cabinet.
Yes, I'm slow on this piece of news. Forgive me, I've been overwhelmed with work and over the weekend I rocked the migraine express. Congrats to Hilda Solis!
