Dumb Voters Punked by Trump: Labor Pick Hates the Working Class. “Working class hero” and master marketer Donald Trump has truly punked his voters with his latest cabinet pick. Trump is becoming the walking definition of a politician who said one thing during a campaign only to turn and do the opposite in office. His voters may finally be noticing as Trump receives the lowest favorable ratings of any President-Elect.
That choice, Hardees owner Andrew Puzder to be Secretary of Labor, is the complete opposite of what anyone who cares about American workers should want. Puzder, 66, is a critic of protecting workers, is against the $15 minimum wage and overtime pay and is on the record as an opponent of universal health care.
Puzder has stated he prefers machines over people because machines, “are always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there’s never a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race discrimination case.”
