Andy Puzder, Carl’s Junior fast-food executive, has had multiple delays in his confirmation as new Labor Secretary. His most recent delay came from a claim that he had previously hired a housekeeper who was an illegal immigrant. Puzder has come forward to claim these accusations, but also explained that when he learned his housekeeper was illegally working and without her papers, he immediately laid her off and sent her to seek legal counsel in becoming a US Citizen. Although he has come forward and given a statement, there is still an investigation underway for the security of the Labor Secretary position. Past Trump nominees for other positions are also being investigated-causing a delay in the transition of administrations between Obama and Trump.
