Alexander Acosta as Labor Secretary.  On a quick view  of his background, Acosta seems like an excellent choice..  Acosta is a  former law clerk for Justice Alito when Alito was on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals  and has also served as a member of the NLRB, he is a Harvard Law School graduate and specializes in employment and labor issues. From  1998 to 2000 Acosta was a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. and in 2008 he was named to the list of 100 most influential individuals in business ethics.
