Secretary of Labor Solis Is Resigning

By Edwin S. Hopson 

On January 9, 2013, U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis submitted her resignation to President Obama.  She is apparently returning to private life in California.  In a press release on the Labor Department’s website, she is reported to have stated, in part: “Growing up in a large Mexican-American family in La Puente, California, I never imagined that I would have the opportunity to serve in a president’s Cabinet, let alone in the service of such an incredible leader.”
