President-elect Donald Trump reportedly will meet with CKE Restaurants CEO Andrew Puzder today to discuss heading the Department of Labor
If this move happens, that should really change the views of the Department of Labor on a massive number of issues, but importantly complex issues like the joint employer issue which has been of deep concern to many business sectors. The report below was just released to Politico Pro members, and was written by Cogan Schneier.
Puzder is widely assumed to be the front-runner pick for Labor secretary, and this will be his second meeting with Trump since the election.
On a transition briefing call this morning, transition spokesman Jason Miller said Puzder “has a really good handle on what the PE is trying to do to improve the economy. He’s someone who has been a success at a number of different levels. He is a job creator and understands what we need to do to get our economy moving for everybody.” Miller added that Puzder is a “very talented man with a very strong background.”
