Fast Food CEO who hires ‘beautiful women eating burgers’ could be labor secretary https://t.co/etw22jAnpC

Business Insider — Andrew Puzder, the CEO of CKE Restaurants [parent of Carl’s Jr.], is in the running to serve as secretary of labor in President-elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet, The New York Times reports, citing an anonymous transition official…
…Carl’s Jr. has been criticized for its ads starring scantily clad women, which Puzder says have helped the business appeal to “hungry, young guys.”
“I like our ads. I like beautiful women eating burgers in bikinis. I think it’s very American,” Puzder told Entrepreneur in 2015. “I used to hear, brands take on the personality of the CEO. And I rarely thought that was true, but I think this one, in this case, it kind of did take on my personality.”
Amen brother. Not a big pick sides kinda guy but hard not to be on this dude’s side here. Oh, you like hot chicks eating burgers in s?l?u?t?t?y? no clothes? You like watching the most American food on earth blow its load all over the hottest chicks in the world? Unreal me too.
You don’t become the CEO of a massive company without knowing how to put asses in the seats. Without knowing how to sling burgers. Sex sells and super hot chicks dressed as slutty as possible getting fucked by cheeseburgers and sausages really, really sells.
If you want to dabble in a little policy talk, Puzder is against raising the minimum wage and basically wants to replace fast-food workers with machines.
In an interview with Business Insider in May, Puzder said he was interested in replacing fast-food workers with kiosks and other automated technology to offset the cost of wages.
“With government driving up the cost of labor, it’s driving down the number of jobs,” he said. “You’re going to see automation not just in airports and grocery stores but in restaurants.”
Tits & ass & burgers & labor policy. Just a fun little Friday blog.
PS — Not Carl’s Jr. but impossible not to include this Abi Ratchford ad.
