F. Ray Marshall is the former secretary of Department of Labor under President Jimmy Carter. Under Marshall, DOL played a major role in Carter’s economic stimulus program, instituting major expansions in public service and job training programs. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) programs were strengthened and “common sense priorities” led to focus on major health problems. Mine Safety and Health Administration was created to protect nation’s miners. Many federal equal employment opportunity programs were consolidated under Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, and women’s programs were strengthened.
