True to his word, president-elect Trump is surrounding himself with capable individuals who have much experience running businesses that actually make a profit contrasted to the usual liberal dunderheads that “advise” the Democrat candidates.
Democrats are usually so busy giving away other people’s money that they lose sight of the fact that people actually have to work to earn that money.
Trump’s new Labor secretary, Andrew Puzder is no stranger to business management and knows what it takes to run one in the black instead of in the red like the federal government does.
The New York Times has the details:
President-elect Donald J. Trump on Thursday chose Andrew F. Puzder, chief executive of the company that franchises the fast-food outlets Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. and an outspoken critic of the worker protections enacted by the Obama administration, to be secretary of labor.
“Andy Puzder has created and boosted the careers of thousands of Americans, and his extensive record fighting for workers makes him the ideal candidate to lead the Department of Labor,” Mr. Trump said in a statement.
Mr. Puzder, 66, fits the profile of some of Mr. Trump’s other domestic cabinet appointments. He is a wealthy businessman and political donor and has a long record of promoting a conservative agenda that takes aim at President Obama’s legacy. And more than the other appointments, he resembles Mr. Trump in style.
He seems to delight in bashing elites — he complained that “big corporate interests” and “globalist companies” were supporting Hillary Clinton in the presidential election — and is prone to the occasional streak of political incorrectness.
He sounds like our kinda guy!
He opposes huge minimum wage increases and expanding eligibility for overtime pay on the grounds that it would hurt small businesses leading to fewer jobs and believes rising premiums with the Affordable Care Act created a “government-mandated restaurant recession” causing consumers to spend less of their disposable income dining out.
We may not agree with everything Puzder says but he definitely seems to be on the right track to getting the economy moving forward out of the stagnation of the last 8 years.
Having someone in the administration that has actually run a business or held a real job will be a welcome change over the “professional troublemakers” we’ve been cursed with for two terms!
