Just as businesses were expressing cautious optimism over the interim replacement of Labor Secretary Acosta by veteran GOP operative and business ally Patrick Pizzella,  on July 18, 2019 the President announced plans to nominate business attorney Eugene Scalia to fill the role.

The son of former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and current attorney at Gibson Dunn in Washington D.C., Eugene Scalia has fought against a number of labor proposals backed by Democrats.  Scalia is expected to more actively push a business-friendly agenda at the Labor Department—and certainly more than his predecessor, who has been accused by aides in the White House of slow-walking the President’s pro-business agenda.
