Donald Trump didn’t really appoint Walter White, the guy from Breaking Bad, to run the DEA, but his nomination of fast-food CEO Andrew “women are meat” Puzder to be Labor Secretary sure comes close.
Update: Amid reports that as many as 12 Republicans were ready to vote against his confirmation, Puzder withdrew his nomination.
Puzder “Fails Every Test of a Labor Secretary”
In December, Ross Eisenbrey of the Economic Policy Institute wrote of Puzder’s nomination,Andrew Puzder fails every test for a Labor Secretary
He’s opposed to the new overtime rule that gave the right to time and a half pay to millions of salaried employees earning less than $47,476 a year. Wal-Mart has already raised its managers’ pay, as did about half of all big retailers, even before the rule was supposed to take effect on December 1. But Puzder wants to kill it so he can keep working low-paid employees without paying them a dime extra for their overtime hours.
