Big news! The hearing for President Donald Trump’s nominee for labor secretary, Andrew Puzder, has been delayed again. There are also reports that Puzder is considering dropping out of the running for the position.
The pressure we’re putting on our senators is working, but we need to keep it up. They need to hear us loud and clear: Puzder would be a disaster for working families.
His anti-worker record could fill a book:
- He’s railed against increasing the minimum wage and expanding overtime.
- He’s shortchanged workers at his Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurants and even refused to pay managers overtime they earned.
- He’s talked about replacing working people with machines.
And after all that, he wants to be put in charge of our country’s labor laws? We don’t think so.
You can take action right now to make sure Puzder never gets the chance to enact his anti-worker agenda.
The Department of Labor directly touches the lives of all working people. It impacts our paychecks, safety in the workplace and our ability to exercise our legal rights on the job. With so much on the line, it’s vitally important that we make our voices heard.
Calling only takes a minute, and it’s the fastest, most effective way to send a strong message to your senators that you expect them to stand with working people.
But we need to speak out now.
When working people speak out together, there’s no force more powerful. Thank you for taking action.
