Professor and Chair of Labor and Employment Studies John Logan discussed Boston Mayor Marty Walsh's Secretary of Labor nomination in an op-ed published by The Hill.
Logan detailed five key reasons why he believes Marty Walsh has potential to excel as Labor Secretary, including his close relationship with President-elect Biden, ability to bride divides within the labor movement, relatable professional and personal experiences, deep understanding of diverse sectors, and a passion for revitalizing the Department of Labor with a talented group of experts. Walsh lacks the Ivy League degree common of nominees, coming instead from humble beginnings in Boston’s working-class, a quality that Logan says makes him "the perfect candidate to transform the moribund Trump Labor Department into one that once again protects American workers."
