You, Too, Can Apply to be the Secretary of Labor for the State of Maryland
I happened to come across the job announcement for the position of "Secretary - Department of Labor, Licensing & Regulation. [DLLR]" Essential job function number 1 is: "Ensures effective enforcement of workplace safety and wage laws to provide critical safeguards to Maryland workers and communities." The DLLR has a broad mission. So in addition to enforcing our State's wage laws, the candidate must also be prepared to provide "executive direction for the Maryland Racing Commission and the Governor’s Workforce Investment Board."
