The Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pension Committee is holding a hearing next week on David Weil’s nomination to lead the Department of Labor’s Wage & Hour Division. 

Weil is a radical academic with no private sector experience that is anti-free enterprise to his core. If confirmed, Weil will work overtime to destroy the franchise business model that employs 7.6 million Americans nationwide.
