JCN CEO in the news – Andy Puzder and the American Dream

Posted on August 28, 2015 by Kathy Hoekstra

CKE Restaurants CEO and JCN member Andy Puzder explains to a live FreedomFest audience what needs to happen for the American Dream to stay alive for today's entrepreneurs.

FreedomFest is described by Fox Business News’ John Stossel as the biggest meeting of folks who care about liberty. In that spirit, Stossel hosted a recent program in front of a studio audience discussing the future of the American Dream.

CKE Restaurants CEO and JCN member Andy Puzder joined Stossel for the spirited and much needed discussion about opportunities and obstacles facing today’s entrepreneurs. As Puzder summarized on his blog:

“No discussion about the American Dream, though, would have been complete without talking about upward mobility, the role of minimum wage jobs in helping people climb the ladder of success, and the obstacles people face in government. As I told John, we need to create jobs for anyone who wants to work and the only way to increase opportunity and reduce poverty is thru economic growth, not government growth. This is the best way for us to ensure that the American Dream won’t fade away!”

Job Creators Network agrees – less government interference means more for aspiring business owners who might wish to follow in the footsteps of people like Andy Puzder.
