Over the past six months, I have posted two other speeches by Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez: his comments in commemoration of Labor Day and his very well-received speech to the national convention of the AFL-CIO.

Indeed, I would encourage progressives to follow his career and to be ready to support him actively and enthusiastically if he should decide to seek an elected office.
