Pallone on Nomination of Andy Puzder for Labor Secretary

December 8, 2016
Press Release
Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. released a statement on reports that Andy Puzder will be nominated to serve as Labor Secretary: “It is the responsibility of the Labor Department to fight for working families and do its part to protect wages and enforce fair labor standards. Unfortunately, Andy Puzder has repeatedly taken positions against President Obama’s policies to improve the working conditions for millions of Americans. He opposes raising the minimum wage, paid sick leave, increasing overtime pay, and would work to undermine the ability of unions to negotiate fair compensation for American workers. “This nomination is yet another sign that President-elect Trump’s administration will stand up for special interests and big business, while ignoring the issued faced by working families in America.” ###
