During the question-and-answer portion of the event, moderator Steven Rattner asked Perez how he would increase union membership.

“Well, I think you have all these — there’s an unmitigated assault on labor unions across a number of states and there was a case that went before the Supreme Court recently, and frankly if Justice Scalia had not passed away it would have really made it very difficult for public sector labor unions to organize,” Perez told Rattner.

The comments are reminiscent of those made by Ted Strickland in August of this year, obtained exclusively by NTK Network.
