I admit to making negative comments about those Donald Trump has appointed to Cabinet positions, but his latest selections makes it clear that I do not grasp the brilliance of our newly elected president. Our new Secretary of Labor will be Andrew Rizder who currently is CEO of Hardee’s. Consider the brilliance of this choice, who else but a business leader would you desire as head of a Cabinet position that focuses upon the needs of workers, BUT A BUSINESS CEO?
There is overwhelming evidence that Mr. Rizder only considers the needs of workers. He opposes raising the minimum wage because how can any business make profit if workers are earning such exorbitant salaries of $8 an hour? For every dollar that goes to workers, one less goes to the business owner. I thought the Labor Department was designed to protect the rights of business people. Was I wrong? OH, the Hardee guy also opposes extending overtime pay to millions of people.
