The Fight for $15 scored a major victory when we helped knock out Donald Trump’s first pick to lead the Department of Labor – the awful fast-food CEO Andy Puzder.
Now, Trump’s nominated Alexander Acosta for the job – and we want to know: Will he stand up for us?
This is our moment to find out – and make sure our senators hold him accountable.
