Block Andrew Puzder for Secretary of Labor

Submitted by Friends of the Earth on Mon, 02/06/2017 - 6:35 pm

Donald Trump nominated fast food CEO Andrew Puzder to be Secretary of Labor. Puzder is hostile to workers, farmers, and the environment. If confirmed, he'd ensure that the interests of the fast food industry -- and its Big Ag suppliers -- would come before people and the planet.

Puzder is facing a tough confirmation fight in the Senate. His hearing has already been delayed four times. We have a real shot at stopping his confirmation -- but we need you to keep the pressure on your Senators to reject him!

Weary Eyes is a song about letting life unfold naturally. We spend so much time worrying about the future or dwelling on the past that we forget to live in the present.

Life unfolds in the present, so enjoy each moment and look for the positive in everything.” Scott Woodruff
