A handful of Republican Senators answered our prayers last week in urging the White House to withdraw the nomination of David Weil for the position of Administrator of the Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division. A staunch opponent of the franchise business model and all things franchising, Wei, an academician and anti-business author, was nominated by President Biden for another stint as head of the Wage and Hour Division, the exact position he held during the 2nd term of the Obama administration. His nomination has hit turbulent waters in the Senate Committee on Health Education Labor and Pensions (HELP) where it still languishes after an August committee vote deadlocked 11-11. This week, Senators Mike Braun (R-IN), Richard Burr (R-NC), Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Tim Scott (R-SC) and Jerry Moran (R-KS) sent a letter to the President urging him to withdraw the anti-business Weil from further consideration. Senate Rule XXXI required the nomination to be returned to the President, who must resubmit it or withdraw the nominee’s name.
