MAKE AMERICA LOW WAGE! Trump Nominates Puzder for Labor Secretary       

President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for labor secretary, Andy Puzder, CEO of CKE Restaurants and subsidiaries Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, could pave the way toward business deregulation.
While there are many layers to his appointment, Puzder has taken strong anti-labor stances, long decrying California’s minimum wage policy and other regulations that he claims have driven businesses out of the state. Puzder is, in fact, in the process of moving CKE’s headquarters from Carpinteria to income-tax-free Nashville, Tenn.
“Gov. Jerry Brown had promised to address the problem that everyone in the state’s business side talks about in overregulation. Maybe this could be a potential avenue of agreement between California and the federal level,” said Herb Gooch, a political science professor at California Lutheran University. “It’s a longshot but it could spur collaboration.”
