Why NJ Greens Oppose the Appointment of Fast-Food King for Labor Secretary

Parsippany, NJ –  I along with the rest of the members of the Green Party of New Jersey find the appointment of Andrew Pudzer to the position of Labor Secretary by president-elect Donald Trump to be reprehensible. Pudzer as CEO of the CKE Resturants, the parent company of Hardees's & Carl's Jr., has been critical of raising the federal minimum wage; opposes the Labor Department rule that would make more workers eligible for overtime pay; has been critical of paid sick leave, and is an outspoken proponent of automation that has promised to automate his chains everywhere the minimum wage has been raised. President-elect Trump has repeatedly said he supports American workers and the saving if American jobs but with this appointment is anathema to those promises no matter how hollow they were to begin with. The Dept of Labor, in 60% of its investigations of CKE restaurants and franchises were found to have violated wage and hours laws. Having an Anti-Labor Secretary would be bad for American workers.
