FEATURED ACTIONS

Urge your Congressperson to stop the nomination of #AntiLaborSecretary Andrew Puzder

Say NO to the #AntiLaborSecretary

Andrew Puzder, nominee for the U.S. Secretary of Labor, is an avowed enemy of workers’ rights. CEO of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., Puzder has demonstrated outright hostility to workers, including those at his own business. Puzder is opposed to paid family and medical leave, paid sick days, equal pay, raising the minimum wage, and extending access to overtime pay–policies we need to keep women and their families afloat. He will no doubt seek to dismantle the already inadequate protections that working people count on.

Click here to tell your Senator, that a vote for confirmation of Andrew Puzder, is a vote against the welfare of American workers. Join us by saying “NO” to the #AntiLaborSecretary.
