Almost Fun to Watch Trump Shank His Supporters

Trump has picked Andrew Puzder, the head of the Carl's Jr. and Hardee's fast food restaurants, as his nominee for Labor secretary.
In other words, a guy from an industry that has thrived on paying people as little as possible and is rife with complaints about wage theft and otherwise screwing over workers. This is the guy who is going to work to protect the rights of workers in the Grifter Administration.

All the wage-earning folks who rallied for Trump and bought into this "make America great again" hype are about to feel that cold shiv coming in between their ribs.

Meanwhile, the trucking industry is hoping that Trump will remove rules which require that truck divers are adequately rested. And note that all of those "states' rights" Republicans line up on the side of Federal regulation whenever they see a benefit to it.
