President-elect Donald Trump has announced his intention to nominate Andrew Puzder, Chief Executive Officer of CKE Holdings, the parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, to head the U.S. Department of Labor.

Puzder has criticized state and local minimum wage increases, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and government overregulation, among other things.
