National Women’s Law Center Comes Out for Perez

The National Women’s Law Center recently came out in support of President Obama’s nomination of Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez’s nomination to be Secretary of Labor.

In a statement, the organization’s Co-President Nancy Duff Campbell said “Tom Perez’s twenty-year career in public service demonstrates a commitment to civil rights and to enforcing core legal protections upon which women, and all Americans, rely.”

NWLC’s other Co-President, Marcia Greenberger shared how important the Labor Department is to women’s issues in America, saying  that “it enforces the federal guarantee that workers can take job-protected family and medical leave, wage and hour protections that protect workers from exploitation and abuse, and rules requiring federal contractors to advance equal opportunity in their workforces, among other crucial protections.”
