Victory! Puzder Withdrew Nomination for Labor Secretary
February 15, 2017 - Equality Federation is pleased that following weeks of pressure, Andrew Puzder withdrew from consideration for Labor Secretary today. Equality Federation, alongside labor groups, women's groups, and others, has been raising concerns about Puzder's deeply troubling record of undermining the dignity of his employees and his refusal to answer questions about his commitment to nondiscrimination protections.
"Hardworking Americans should have a Labor Secretary who champions fairness and opportunity for all," said Rebecca Isaacs, Executive Director. "Mr. Puzder actively worked to undermine the fair treatment of his own employees and refused to champion equality for LGBTQ people and our families."
