Cheese Chat: Secretary Perez Chimes In

Following the President’s State of the Union address, the White House hosted the third annual Big Block of Cheese Day, a nod to an open house Andrew Jackson hosted in 1837, and a massive 1,400-pound cheddar that fed his guests.

Wednesday’s interactive “open house” gave Americans across the country a whey to ask Cabinet members and other administration officials questions on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram  and Google+.

Secretary Perez, rocking some festive cheesy headgear, dropped by as the show was getting started to respond to sharp (and mild) questions about raising the minimum wage, equal pay for equal work, paid leave, apprenticeships, and community colleges to build an economy that works for everyone.
