By an overwhelming margin, voters in Alaska and Maine believe the record of wage theft, tax dodging and outsourcing by President Trump’s choice for labor secretary, Andy Puzder, should lead Sens. Lisa Murkowski (AK) and Susan Collins (ME) to reject the fast-food CEO’s nomination, a new poll shows.
Only 23% of voters in Alaska, 22% of in Maine want their Senators to support Puzder!
“While Sens. Murkowski and Collins are undecided, their constituents’ opinion on Andy Puzder is clear—they feel he is unfit to hold the one job in the president’s cabinet that is focused squarely on protecting America’s workers,” said Christine Owens, executive director of the National Employment Law Project.
“Andy Pudzer has a long history of holding down wages for his employees, and he is on record opposing employees having healthcare and paid sick leave,” said Tim Rich, a small business owner in Maine and member of the Maine Small Business Coalition. “These aren’t just financial issues – they are moral ones. Based on his record, Andy Puzder is the exact opposite of what working Americans need in a labor secretary.”
This proves what the Fight for $15 has been saying all along — Andrew Puzder is terrible for our country and CANNOT be given the job.
