Senate Confirms Corporate Attorney Eugene Scalia as Labor Secretary

HeadlineSep 27, 2019

The Senate voted along party lines Thursday to confirm Eugene Scalia to succeed Alex Acosta as U.S. labor secretary. Scalia is the son of the late far-right Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and a partner at the powerful law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. Scalia has a long history of opposing labor unions on behalf of corporate clients, including Walmart. Much of Scalia’s legal work has been aimed at stopping the Dodd-Frank financial regulations enacted after the 2008 financial collapse.
