    Puzder is against raising the minimum wage.

    President-elect Donald J. Trump on Thursday chose Andrew F. Puzder, chief executive of the company that franchises the fast-food outlets Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. and an outspoken critic of the worker protections enacted by the Obama administration, to be secretary of labor.

    He has criticized paid sick leave policies of the sort recently enacted for federal contractors and strongly supports repealing the Affordable Care Act, which he says has created a “government-mandated restaurant recession” because rising premiums have left people with less money to spend dining out.

    But Obamacare is not what has caused the increases (which have been lower under Obama) in insurance.

    No, that would take legislation and not the magic wand of your new boogie man. You Lib's/Communits and Socialists love to invent your evil nemesis without looking inside yourselves first.

    UPDATE:

    1981 in California when minimum was $2.65/hr the Big Mac Combo Meal was $2.65

    1984 in California when minimum was $3.35/hr the Big Mac Combo Meal was $3.35

    1986 in California when minimum was $3.85/hr the Big Mac Combo Meal was $3.85

    2014 in California when minimum was $9.00/hr the Big Mac Combo Meal was $6.97

    2016 in California when minimum was $10.50/hr the Big Mac Combo Meal was $7.67

    Now tell us why the minimum wage needs to increase and then tell us with a straight face prices won't rise. As of now minimum wage is higher than a Big Mac meal.

    There are many social problems you want to blame on wages as though it will make a difference while this country was not built by those with very little skin in the game. We have a Bill of Rights and once we stray from that to add to it we will eventually give up some of those rights for the additional ones. The human race is far from perfecting itself and by the means you prescribe will only divide people by means of anger and hate. The proof is that Liberals and all other forms of Leftists define themselves by IDENTITY Politics as you do here.

    Carl's Jr is marketed to black people since Hardee's is a red state thing and there they don't even try.

    When you stop being racist, you can get away with paying criminally low wages.

    I hope so. Paying a high school drop out $15 an hour to flip a burger is ridiculous.
