Today Trump chose Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr CEO/owner to run the Labor department. Andrew Puzder is against a minimum wage increase and pays his shift leaders $9.50 an hour. In 4 hours selfish CEO Puzder makes as much money as one of his employees do in a year. He makes roughly 300 times what he pays the average full timer at his company. A recent survey of reviews on the career site Glassdoor show that he is rated at the bottom of the barrel for similar sized companies.
Puzder is a horrid choice to run the labor department and yet, he might be Trump’s least dangerous pick so far!
