Massachusetts Democratic Party Statement on Withdrawal of Puzder’s Nomination

BOSTON — Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford issued the following statement in response to the withdrawal of fast food executive Andy Puzder’s nomination as Labor Secretary:

“Andy Puzder’s withdrawal as nominee for Labor Secretary is a win for working families in Massachusetts and across the nation and is just one of many examples of the early unraveling of the Trump Administration.

“As with his other cabinet nominations, Trump chose someone wholly unqualified. Throughout his career, Puzder was only interested in the corporate bottom line. We deserve a Labor Secretary dedicated to protecting and advocating for America’s working families, not one that made his millions cheating workers out of their wages.”
