According to reports, President-elect Donald Trump will name Carl’s Jr/Hardee’s CEO Andy Puzder as his Secretary of Labor.
Puzder’s resume is beyond impressive, but perhaps the most notable tidbit that should have every American worker excited is the fact that he literally wrote the book on job creation:
“Job Creation: How it Really Works and Why Government Doesn’t Understand it.” — co-written by Pudzer.
Puzder obviously has deep conservative principles and wants to jump start job growth and keep government at a minimum. What more can we ask for?
Here’s part of his bio, as taken from his company website:
“Andrew F. Puzder is the CEO of CKE Restaurants, Inc. He earned a Juris Doctorate in 1978 from Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, Mo., where he served as Senior Editor on the Law Review. From 1978 through 1991, Puzder was a commercial trial lawyer in St. Louis at the law offices of famed St. Louis attorney Morris A. Shenker, who he represented in various matters, from 1978 to 1984. In 1984 he moved to the Stolar Partnership where he worked with another renowned St. Louis trial lawyer Charles A. Seigel from 1984 to 1991. During this period of time, Puzder was involved in a number of high-profile cases.
While practicing law in St. Louis, Puzder met Carl Karcher, the founder of the Carl’s Jr. quick-service restaurant chain. Karcher was embroiled in serious financial difficulties and asked Puzder to move to California as his personal attorney. In 1991, Puzder relocated to Orange County, Calif. He is credited with resolving Karcher’s financial dilemma, allowing Karcher to avoid bankruptcy and retain a significant ownership interest in the company he founded, CKE Restaurants, Inc. (“CKE”).”
Conservatives will recognize that this is another swamp-draining dream pick on Trump’s behalf. If you’re as excited as we are, share this around social media and let everyone know America is well on its way to being great again!
