Responding to Puzder’s Withdrawal

Statement by Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain in response to Andrew Puzder withdrawing as the Labor Secretary nominee:

“Everything we have seen about Andrew Puzder indicates he would have been a step backward for working people as Labor Secretary: from wages and benefits, to the rights of workers to stand together in unions. Through his business practices, he has demonstrated routine violations of labor law, disrespect toward his employees, and an opposition to a living wage. That’s why the labor movement spoke up against his nomination, and that’s why we expect better than Andrew Puzder as Labor Secretary. I’m thankful that Oregon’s Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley spoke out against Puzder, and grateful to everyone in Oregon who voiced their concern about this dangerous nomination.”
