Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis announced Wednesday that she will leave the administration — a surprise resignation that adds to what is turning into a major shake-up among President Obama's team.
Leaders of a House panel want a Tennessee public relations firm to turn over records on roughly $2 million in federal stimulus program contracts it won from the Department of Labor, including details of the work it did on a nearly half-million-dollar ad campaign on MSNBC that reported creating no jobs.
Dear Sgt Shaft: How do I begin to get an exemption/dispute from the 20/20/20 rule? They do happen per individual Dates of Service and Regulation Changes. I was married for 30 years. My husband was on active duty for 22 years. Only 17½ not 20 were overlapping years. I understand that the rules have changed. I was told that if I was married for 20 years with 20 years active duty that I would qualify for former spouse if divorced. How do I start a case requesting Former Spouse Benefits exempting the 20-20-20 requirement?

Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis on Monday said both political parties must come together to attack slow economic growth and high unemployment.

Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis called the decrease encouraging and pledged to continue her agency's stepped-up enforcement of workplace safety laws.
"Stand Down events across the country will reach thousands of homeless veterans -- including homeless female veterans -- with opportunities to re-enter America's workforce," said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis, who is also chair of the Interagency Council on Homelessness. "Through these grants, the federal government will engage states and local communities as active partners in readying those who have served our nation for civilian jobs."
