STATEMENT OF LESLY LOPEZ, FIGHT FOR 15 ACTIVIST AND FORMER CARL’S JR. WORKER, ON PUZDER WITHDRAWAL
“We’re happy that Puzder has been rejected, but our fight is just beginning. There are a lot more rotten creatures in the swamp: wage thieves, abusers, and corporate cronies. If another one of them is nominated, we will fight just as hard against him or her.
“Fast food workers have a voice, and we will continue to use it to fight back against those who support discrimination, exploitation, and injustice. We’re in it for the long haul.”
