Schumer: Trump should drop Labor nominee | TheHill

“They ought to withdraw the nomination of Puzder before he further embarrasses this administration and further exposes the hypocrisy of President Trump, saying one thing to the workers of America, and then doing another,” he added.

Puzder will appear before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee on Feb. 16 for his long-awaited confirmation hearing.


Puzder's nomination has stirred criticism because of his views on issues such as sick leave and overtime pay for workers. He admitted on Monday that he had once employed an undocumented immigrant as a housekeeper, but said he fired the woman when he learned she wasn't eligible to work in the U.S.

“Nominating Puzder to oversee the Labor Department is clearly having a fox guard the hen house, and a pretty sharp-toothed fox at that,” Schumer said. “How can a man who made his career, his fortune in an industry known for cheating workers out of wages and overtime, be trusted?”

Unfortunately, you could not have picked a worse nominee to uphold these goals than Andrew Puzder,” Schumer continued.

Unfortunately, you could not have picked a worse nominee to uphold these goals than Andrew Puzder,” Schumer continued.
You could not have come up with a bunch whose views on labor and government I could possibly detest more or trust less than Chuck Schumer, AFL-CIO, SEIU, NAACP, and Fight for $15. The more vocal their opposition to Puzder is, the more heartfelt support I have for him.
