Thomas Perez, the Obama administration’s pick to become Secretary of Labor, can expect tough questions from Republican senators when he sits down for confirmation hearings on April 18.

Despite GOP objections, congressional handicappers expect Perez to be confirmed to replace former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis.
