Proponents hope that they can quickly be confirmed and get started bringing reforms to increase American prosperity and security.
At the top of the list of nominees who can help reinvigorate the small business community, which drives the nation’s job and economic growth, is labor secretary nominee Andy Puzder.
Puzder knows how to create jobs and finally raise wages for working Americans. This is evidenced not only by his copious writing on the subject but also by his success as CEO of CKE Restaurants. Under his tenure, CKE, which owns the restaurants Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, has grown from a multi-million dollar company into a billion dollar brand.
