In 2016 both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders campaigned on a platform of helping working class Americans. Only one was telling the truth, and you know it wasn’t Trump.

Trump’s Labor Secretary Andrew Puzder has disgusting anti-labor ideals. Incredibly, he’s calling for work breaks and overtime pay to be all but eliminated in America.

Workers are already utterly taken advantage of in the U.S., and having breaks and overtime pay is one of the few perks we have. Abolishing these practices is about as anti-working class as you can be.

So where is the Trump from the campaign trail? He promised to fight for workers, and now he’s all for shredding the last protections they have.

Trump has lied to the American people time and time again, but this is perhaps his most disgusting one of all. He could not care less about the working class: he’s just in this to help him and his billionaire friends get rich.

Puzder is the nightmarish goon who’s going to take from the poor and give to the rich. He’s made it clear in previous interviews that he is no friend of the working class.

“Have you ever been to a fast food restaurant and the employees are sitting,” Puzder said. “Why are they sitting?”

Gee, I don’t know, Puzder. Perhaps they’re taking their measly 15 minutes of rest from standing on their feet for HOURS while serving you food for an unlivable wage.

That’s right, Team Trump doesn’t believe you even have the right to a lunch break. Trump and Puzder are going to parasite from the little guy until all of the 99 percent live in poverty.

Please share this story on Facebook with everyone you know. It’s time for Americans to realize that Trump is literally working against all of our shared interests.
