As the transition of presidential power to President-elect Trump gets closer, President Obama has asked cabinet secretaries to write “exit memos” to identify progress they believe they have made and highlight the work that remains.  In response, most of the Secretariats have completed the task and released their vision. Department of Labor Secretary Tom Perez issued his exit memo yesterday touting the department’s “accomplishments”, which included re-writing the overtime and fiduciary regulations as well as its Wage & Hour Division having taken a “more strategic approach to enforcing the laws that protect workers’ wages . . .” Now an announced candidate for the Chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee, Perez went on to advocate increasing the federal minimum wage, enact a federal paid leave policy and addressing ‘unfair scheduling practices’.  All of the exit memos are available online.
