  1. With his confirmation hearing set for tomorrow, massive public pressure growing, and tough questions expected, fast food CEO Andy Puzder has withdrawn his nomination to be the next Secretary of Labor, Fox News and others are reporting.

    Puzder out!

    Puzder’s track record at the chain he ran included wage theft violations and rampant sexual harassment. He was an outspoken opponent of the minimum wage. He said he wanted to replace his own employees with robots. He even insulted front-line fast food workers as “toothless”… while failing to provide dental benefits.

    And now he’s out — congratulations!

    This only happened because people like you spoke out and gave Congress the strength to say No. Hundreds of Working Washington supporters suggested tough questions for Senators to ask at Puzder’s hearing. Thousands urged members of Congress to come out in opposition. Multiply that in the other 49 states across the country and the writing was on the wall.

    So Puzder bailed.

    Today let’s celebrate this victory for workers across the country.

    Then let’s get ready for the next fight.

    By contributing to our statewide workers movement, you can do both.

    Wow — this is a big one!

    In hopes the tide is turning,

    Sage, Working Washington
