Job Creators Network Supports CKE Restaurants CEO Andy Puzder as Next Labor Secretary

Proven job creator and champion of small business issues

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of the Job Creators Network, released the following statement about Andy Puzder, CEO of CKE Restaurants, being considered the next Labor Secretary:

Andy Puzder is a proven champion of small business issues and would make an excellent next Labor Secretary. His understanding of how labor regulations prevent small businesses from hiring and thriving would be a welcome relief to American job creators who have suffered under this Labor Department’s regulatory agenda that has included the overtime rule, persuader rule, and blacklisting rule – to name a few. It’s time to make someone who has actually created jobs rather than just regulated them out of existence the next Labor Secretary. Andy Puzder has signed the front of a paycheck and understands what it takes to create jobs at all levels from entry-level to executive making him the perfect candidate.
