Nothing is ever Chicago Jesus’ fault.

Outgoing Labor Secretary Hilda Solis regrets that more people were not hired under her leadership.

She’s confident that President Barack Obama will address concerns over diversity in his second-term cabinet.

And now that she’s stepping down from her cabinet post as Labor Secretary, she clarified she’s still very much in the political game and weighing various options as she returns to her native California. [...]

Solis said her biggest disappointment as Secretary of Labor was that she wished she would of, “had the ability to really get more businesses to understand the importance of having confidence in the economy and hiring up more people,” and hoped business leaders would help more young people coming out of college with more emphasize internships and mentorships.

Solis also said that in many ways the Obama administration “did not get the kind of support we needed originally when he took office for the American Recovery Act funds” and blamed “a small group known as the tea party movement” for not engaging with the president and “hurting the American public, our economy, and the future of our country.”
