E

If understanding of the labor unions is the only qualification then Grayson is definitely the choice.

D. If all other business representatives, and for business-labor relations, somebody from labor side has to be present.

haha, another good one, with almost all options being chosen by someone.
I'll go with the majority and vote E.
The only qualification is understanding labor problems. The guy is an experience labor organizer, and has been the head of a powerful labor union.
So, he is best suited to chair the council. Simple, eh? :wink:

Struck between B and E.
But, I will vote for E since E strengthens the argument more than B does.

I would go with E
According to me B is not the answer as it talks abt the relation with the business leaders which is not a necessity.
where as E states that he has got the reqd skills to do so
