The Fairness Project's Statement on the End of Andy Puzder's Labor Secretary Prospects
Today hardworking Americans fired a billionaire.
The Fairness Project issued the following statement after the White House announced Andrew Puzder (CEO of CKE) would no longer be considered for the Labor Secretary position today.
Jonathan Schleifer, Executive Director, The Fairness Project:“Today, Andy Puzder didn’t withdraw his nomination – he was fired by American workers fed up with a system that puts profits before people. Since last November when voters overwhelmingly supported initiatives to raise wages and bring paid sick leave to millions, Americans are demanding that their leaders move towards a fairer economy. Today, their Senators listened and stopped Puzder and his anti-worker agenda. Now it’s time for the White House to make good on their promise and appoint a leader that advocates for working families.”
