FreedomWorks Applauds Nomination of Andy Puzder to Serve as Labor Secretary

Following the appointment of CKE Restaurants CEO Andy Puzder to serve as secretary of the Department of Labor, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“This is another great cabinet pick by President-elect Trump. Few, if any understand the hurdles facing businesses better than Andy Puzder. From government-mandated minimum wages to bad policy passed by Congress to regulations promulgated by out-of-control bureaucrats, businesses face high hurdles to jump to compete in the marketplace. As someone who runs a successful business and has an intricate knowledge of the challenges that face people of all stripes who are chasing the American dream and better their families, Pudzer is more than qualified to lead the Department of Labor.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at
