Timmons on Puzder: “Trump Has Served Up One of the Best Leaders on the Menu”

Washington, D.C., December 8, 2016 – National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons issued the following statement on the nomination of businessman Andy Puzder as secretary of labor:

“President-elect Donald Trump has served up one of the best leaders on the menu for secretary of labor. Andy Puzder is an insightful businessman who knows what it takes to create jobs and put Americans to work.

“No one knows better than Mr. Puzder that the Obama administration’s workplace rules haven’t just harmed manufacturers and entrepreneurs in America, but have also cost people work and families paychecks. Manufacturers have fought for change and laid out solutions in our “Competing to Win” agenda for labor laws and workplace regulations that reflect the dynamics of modern manufacturing. We’re confident President-elect Trump and Mr. Puzder know the recipe necessary to make America more competitive to create jobs and lift up all Americans.”
