Andy Puzder the Right Choice for Labor Secretary


As President-elect Donald Trump rounds out his Cabinet, America’s job creators can expect a brighter future. Andy Puzder, CEO of CKE Restaurants — the parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s — will become labor secretary in January.

Puzder’s appointment gives the federal government an experienced job creator who knows what it takes to run a business and hire thousands of employees. Most notably, he understands the importance of America’s franchise system, which has created 733,000 small businesses and supports 21 million direct and indirect jobs — a $2.3 trillion boon to the U.S. economy.
