Puzder nom­i­na­tion does not ben­e­fit work­ing fam­i­lies

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

The nom­i­na­tion of An­drew Puzder as Sec­re­tary of La­bor raises grave con­cerns about Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump’s prom­ises to work­ing peo­ple.

Mr. Puzder’s nom­i­na­tion flies in the face of Mr. Trump vow­ing on the cam­paign trail that his eco­nomic plat­form stands for job cre­ation and rais­ing wages. Mr. Puzder does not be­lieve wages need to rise and con­sis­tently puts his busi­ness and prof­its be­fore those he em­ploys. That’s not the help we need.

Mr. Trump needs to make good on his as­sur­ances and ap­point some­one to the De­part­ment of La­bor who lifts up those in need of a bet­ter life. That’s a prom­ise he made to us, and it’s one he must keep. Work­ing fam­i­lies need an ad­vo­cate in the De­part­ment of La­bor, not an en­emy.
