Posted at 6:49 PM, Feb 13, 2017

Hundreds of fast food workers gathered for a rally Monday at a Carl's Jr. to continue their fight for $15 an hour while also protesting the labor secretary nominee.

Carl's Jr. CEO Andy Puzder has been nominated by President Trump for labor secretary.

The protest was one of more than two dozen around the country put together by organizers who say Puzder is unfit for the cabinet job.

Hundreds of fast food cooks and cashiers also gathered at the corporate offices in Anaheim.
