Trump’s Likely Labor Pick, Andrew Puzder, Is Critic of Minimum Wage Increases

Noam Scheiber and Maggie Haberman for the NY Times:

Mr. Puzder has spent his career in the private sector and has opposed efforts to expand eligibility for overtime pay, while arguing that large minimum wage increases hurt small businesses and lead to job loss among low-skilled workers.

Just for those who are not keeping score, so far our President-elect has appointed a climate change denier to head the EPA and someone who wants to lower the minimum wage as secretary of labor. 

It's been a real fun news day.
