Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL), a member of the House Education and the Workforce Committee and a former labor/employment attorney, issued the following statement regarding President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to nominate Mr. Andy Puzder, chief executive of CKE Restaurants, to serve as Secretary of Labor.

Byrne said: “Andy Puzder is the perfect choice to lead the Department of Labor as we advance commonsense policies that actually benefit American workers. As a businessman, he has seen firsthand how the policies of the last eight years have thwarted economic growth and hurt American families. I am confident that under his leadership we can swing the pendulum of power away from Big Labor bosses and back in favor of American workers, and I look forward to partnering with him to advance that goal.”
