Food & farm groups say no to Puzder
On Monday January 30th, more than 100 food and agriculture organizations representing more than 10 million people sent the following letter to Capitol Hill urging senators to oppose the confirmation of fast food CEO Andrew Puzder as secretary of labor. The call was led by Corporate Accountability International, Food Chain Workers Alliance, Friends of the Earth, and Real Food Media.
The unprecedented nature of this coalition underscores the unique threat Puzder faces to people advocating for environmental protection, workers’ rights, and healthy food. The organizations signed onto the letter represent a broad cross-section of the food and labor movement, uniting groups like the National Resources Defense Council, Union of Concerned Scientists, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and the Workers’ Center of Central New York, among many others.
