Since President Trump announced Andrew Puzder as his pick for Labor Secretary in December, people stood up and firmly declared their opposition to the fast-food CEO. His record on hurting working people, demeaning women, and lining his own pockets was in direct contradiction to what we need from the Department of Labor. Yesterday, working people declared victory as Andrew Puzder withdrew as the Labor Secretary nominee. As a result, thousands  took to social media to celebrate this incredible triumph beating back the #AntiLaborSecretary. Puzder’s withdrawal was proof that when we come together, our actions and words speak volumes.

Here’s just a sample of the reaction to yesterday’s news.
