Help wanted: Trump administration still has hundreds of jobs to fill
In the News

April 24, 2017

"Despite an ambitious agenda, the Trump administration is wrapping up its first 100 days with a long list of campaign promises to work on — and an even longer list of positions that remain empty. Nearly three months into Trump's term, two of his nominees, Labor secretary nominee Alexander Acosta and Agriculture secretary nominee Sonny Perdue, have yet to be confirmed. The delays are far longer than for any of the last six administrations."

"Think President Trump’s first 100 days were bumpy? Just wait for the 1,361 to follow.
