Many of you already know the new administration has picked Andrew Puzder, CEO of CKE Restaurants (Hardee's, Carl's Jr, Red Burrito, Green Burrito) as their Secretary of Labor. This Fast Food CEO is a big opponent of the minimum wage and does not stand with workers. This is a man who has pushed through misogyny in ad campaigns and mocked fast food workers expressing desire to turn them into robots because robots don't ask for "bathroom breaks" or "go on vacation." 

  To show that we won't back down in the face of this administration we're doing actions at Hardee's and Carl's Jr stores nationwide. Here in Hartford we don't have this brand so we're holding our action out of the US Department of Labor on Thursday at 12pm.
