Labor Secretary: ‘President’s Executive Action Will Help Lift Wages’ (CNS News)
(CNSNews.com) - Labor Secretary Tom Perez said that President Obama’s executive action on immigration “will help lift wages” and that illegal immigrants are “exploited by employers” during a Politico event at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 20.
“There have been a number of estimates of how the president’s executive action will help lift wages and I agree with that,” Perez said. “What would help lift wages even more is comprehensive immigration reform, and there is no substitute for that comprehensive reform."
