THREAD-Donald Trump ran for president on the idea that he would help struggling Americans, the "forgotten man" as he referred to these implicitly white workers, rise up after years of neglect from a shifty labor market and stagnant wages. forbes.com/sites/pedrodac…
Instead, Trump is pursuing the most hostile anti-labor agenda of any modern president, rolling back all kinds of legal protections for working people and ensuring big business can preempt attempts by labor to organize and bargain for fair wages and working conditions.
Trump’s pick to replace Alexander Acosta, who was forced to stepped down because of the shockingly lenient deal he gave convicted pedophile and Trump friend Jeffrey Epstein during his days as a Florida prosecutor, is in a way a crowing jewel of his anti-drive agenda.
A "legacy" right-wing nominee in the nepotistic tradition of Trumpism, Eugene Scalia is the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, widely seen as the most reactionary justice on the court.
He has spent a career in corporate law fighting for the interests of firms over workers, with clients ranging from Walmart to the major Wall Street banks seeking to avoid and evade post-crisis regulations.
"Eugene Scalia has spent his career fighting for the interests of financial firms, corporate executives, and shareholders rather than the interests of working people.
"He actually argued in court against the 'fiduciary' rule, the Department of Labor rule that would have simply required retirement advisers to work in the best interest of their clients."
