Breaking news! Workers have been speaking out and the hearing for President Donald Trump’s nominee for labor secretary, Andrew Puzder, has been delayed, for the fourth time. There are even reports that Puzder is considering dropping out of the running for the position.
The pressure we’re putting on our senators is working, let’s keep it up. Our Senators need to hear us loud and clear: Puzder would be a disaster for working families.
TAKE ACTION right now to make sure Puzder never gets the chance to enact his anti-worker agenda.
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.
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.
When working people speak out together, there’s no force more powerful.
