On Friday, Secretary of Labor Tom Perez appeared on CNBC to discuss the October jobs report, which saw unemployment fall below 5 percent.
While discussing the economy, Perez began promoting the need for a more liberal agenda.
“When you raise the minimum wage, you put more money in people’s pockets,” Perez claimed. He added that passing immigration reform also put “money in people’s pockets” and helped grow the economy.
“We know what needs to be done. We just need to muster the political will to do it.”
Perez has been mentioned as a possible candidate for Attorney General in a Hillary Clinton administration.
