According to Fox News, Donald Trump will appoint fast food exec Andrew Puzder as America’s next Secretary of Labor:
Fast food executive Andrew Puzder is President-elect Donald Trump’s pick to lead the Department of Labor, transition sources told Fox News on Thursday.
Puzder is CEO of CKE Restaurants Inc., which owns Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s.
He is a Trump adviser who has been critical of the Affordable Care Act’s impact on full-time employment. He’s also opposed steep increases in the minimum wage and has warned about the damaging effects of overregulation.
Puzder would represent the latest Trump pick sharply at odds with the Obama administration on domestic policy.
