Trump’s pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services, Representative Tom Price (R-GA), is anti-science, anti-regulation, and anti-health. In addition to being one of the most vocal opponents against Obamacare, he’s voted:
• Against healthier school meals

• Against increased food-safety inspections and protecting food safety funding
• Against calorie labeling and informed choices in fast-food and other chain restaurants

Trump’s pick for Secretary of Labor, fast-food tycoon Andrew Puzder of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurants: 
• Opposes minimum wage increases, even though he makes 300 times more than his workers
• Opposes overtime pay
• Criticized paid sick leave policies, which affects workers’ health and yours; 65% of foodborne illness outbreaks start in restaurants
