Stop Andy Puzder!

PuzderDOL.pngInstead of taking on the rigged economy, it seems like Donald Trump wants to rig it up even more. By picking Andrew Puzder for labor secretary, Trump made it pretty clear – the next four years are going to be about low pay, wage theft, sexual harassment, and racial discrimination.

Puzder, CEO of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., is paid more in one day than many of his employees make in a year— and that’s the way he wants to keep it.

Trump wants to put Puzder in charge of enforcing these very laws that he broke as CEO. He opposes the minimum wage. He thinks workers are overprotected. He is against unions. He even said he wants to fire workers and replace them with machines that can’t take vacations or sue their employers when they break the law. In fact, as a fast-food CEO, he regularly broke the laws he’d be responsible for enforcing if he gets the job.

Puzder is the wrong choice for labor secretary. He is simply unfit to be put in charge protecting our nation’s workers and we’re calling on Members of the Senate to reject the nomination of Andy Puzder to lead the Department of Labor.

Stand with the #FightFor15! Tell Senators Schumer and Gillibrand to strongly oppose Andy Puzder for Labor Secretary.

Senators Schumer and Gillibrand:

As the Senators for New York State, you both must reject the nomination of Andy Puzder, one of the worst fast-food CEO’s, to lead the Department of Labor. He opposes the minimum wage and doesn’t care about his employees – he is simply unfit to be put in charge protecting our nation’s workers.
