Donald Trump Reportedly Considering Fast Food CEO For Labor Secretary

President-elect Donald Trump famously loves fast food. But does he love it enough to put a fast-food executive in charge of the Labor Department?

On Friday, the New York Times reported that Trump is mulling Andrew Puzder to be his labor secretary. Puzder is the chief executive of CKE Restaurants, the parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s. The Times attributed its brief report to an anonymous official on Trump’s transition team. Puzder met with Trump in person last month after the election.

And a continuation of the "worst person I can find for the job" pattern of his incoming administration.

was the first fast food business to be automated in Tulsa. More are on the way. I would suggest anyone looking for job security in the future should learn to repair the machines.
