Senator Warren's Statement on the Nomination of Andrew Puzder for Secretary of Labor

Washington, D.C. - Senator Elizabeth Warren released the following statement on today's announcement that President-elect Donald Trump will nominate Andrew Puzder, CEO of CKE Restaurants, to serve as Secretary of Labor:

"Throughout his entire career, Andrew Puzder has looked down on working people. At Hardees and Carl's Jr., he got rich squeezing front-line workers on wages, overtime, and benefits, all while plotting to replace them with machines that are so much better than workers because they are ‘always polite' and ‘never take a vacation.' Appointing Puzder to run the federal agency responsible for protecting workers is a slap in the face for every hard working American family."
