Peters Statement on Andrew Puzder’s Withdrawal for Consideration as Labor Secretary

WASHINGTON, DCBelow is a statement from U.S. Senator Gary Peters on the Andrew Puzder’s withdrawal from consideration as Labor Secretary:

"American workers deserve a Secretary of Labor who will stand up for them and their families and work to create and keep good paying jobs here in the United States. But Mr. Puzder’s business practices and treatment of his own employees shows he would prioritize special interests over what’s best for middle-class working families. Mr. Puzder’s withdrawal is good news for Michigan workers, and I call on President Trump to choose a nominee who will champion workers’ rights."
