CKE Restaurants CEO and JCN member Andy Puzder talks market swings, good burgers, government over-regulation and job creation on Fox Business News.
Government needs to back off. That was the title and the message of the latest appearance by CKE Restaurants CEO and JCN member Andy Puzder on Fox Business News and a corresponding blog post on his own site.
Puzder and host Charles Payne touched on the recent market selloff – especially in the restaurant industry – as well as gas prices, a strong dollar and increasing numbers of people eating outside of their homes.
