Acosta is New Labor Secretary Nominee

Today, Acostathe President announced that he is nominating Alex Acosta for Secretary of Labor. As many readers know, Acosta is a former member of the NLRB and is currently Dean at FIU's law school.

I really like this choice. Although we have substantive differences, I have a great deal of respect for Acosta. We were both at the NLRB during his short time there and it seemed to me that he always took his job and the role of the NLRA seriously; even when I disagreed with his vote, his decisions were thoughtful and reasonable. 

Stay tuned.
