President Trump just fulfilled another 'to do' mark on his checklist. The Senate on Thursdays confirmed Alex Acosta as Trump's secretary of labor, according to the Associated Press. The vote was 60-38.
Acosta, the son of Cuban immigrants, will oversee an agency that enforces more than 180 federal laws covering about 10 million employers and 125 million workers.
Prior to his Cabinet gig, Acosta was a federal prosecutor, a civil rights chief at the Justice Department and a member of the National Labor Relations Board.
Acosta's confirmation comes after former fast food CEO Andrew Puzder withdrew his name from consideration after it became clear his political pathway would be a rocky one.
