Elizabeth Warren takes aim at Labor nominee Andrew Puzder

The Boston Globe reports:
The week after her high-profile showdown over President Trump’s pick for attorney general, Elizabeth Warren is gearing up for another round — this time with her sights trained on fast food chief executive Andrew Puzder, the president’s nominee to head the Department of Labor.

Warren this morning fired off a 28-page letter with 83 questions for Puzder, the chief executive of CKE Restaurants, which runs fast food chains Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., ahead of his Feb. 16 confirmation hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee. But there’s little chance his answers will sway Warren, who sits on that panel.
