Block Andrew Puzder for Secretary of Labor

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.
