Retailers Say Puzder Would Put Businesses and Workers Ahead of ‘Partisan Politics’
February 15, 2017,
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Retail Federation urged the Senate to approve CKE Restaurants CEO Andrew Puzder as labor secretary as the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee prepares for a confirmation hearing on Thursday.
“The previous Department of Labor’s sweeping actions on federal overtime rules, joint employer relationships and many other issues have created immense uncertainty for employers and stifled economic growth,” French said. “Both job creators and employees will benefit from a more balanced approach to workforce policies and a secretary of labor who puts the needs of American businesses and workers before partisan politics.”
CKE Restaurants, the parent company of Hardee’s, Carl’s Jr. and Green Burrito, is a member of NRF’s National Council of Chain Restaurants division.
