Andy Dudzer's company out sourced info tech jobs to the Philippines. This meant layoff s for 100's of US workers. I guess that's OK???


Puzder's company, CKE Restaurants Inc., notified the government in August of 2010 that it was outsourcing its restaurant information technology division to the Philippines. Doing so, the agency found, "contributed importantly" to the layoffs of both CKE employees and those of an outside staffing firm at an Anaheim, California facility. The agency's finding made workers eligible for federally funded benefits meant to dampen the impact of globalization on employees.

"By outsourcing the function to a firm that employs hundreds of Help Desk specialists, CKE was able to improve the quality of service levels to their restaurants," the company said in a statement Wednesday to The Associated Press.


Puzder's company continues to use the out sourced labor, seems like an odd pick for labor sec. This seems like a contradiction to the message Trump is trying to end to companies. Do as I say not as I do???

finance.yahoo.com...
There's nothing illegal, or even uncommon, about CKE's decision to move its help desk overseas and lay off about 20 workers. But the filing — and a spokesman's acknowledgement that CKE continues to use the IT operation in the Philippines — provides a window into a key contradiction raised by Trump's nomination of Puzder to head the Cabinet agency charged with enforcing worker rights.

During his first week in the White House, Trump warned that he would impose a "substantial border tax" on companies that move their manufacturing out of the United States. He also promised tax advantages to companies that produce products domesticall

The irony never ends.

It's hard to choose now.

This activity was supported by many.

At least Puzder has "experience" eh.

Donald Trump's own products are made overseas. He staffs Mar-a-lago with H1B visa workers and as who was it? Rubio? Pointed out during a GOP debate, he was using undocumented workers (Polish) as far back as 1980 for demolition and then not paying them.

It's always been do as a I say not as I do.

Now the changeling can say that outsourcing is bad, and the band can play on.

Terrible choice if this is true, and he had anything to do with it. Looks like he was in the Loop. He didn't know he would be in Trump's admin.

I guess it is do as I say not as I do. He made his $$$ firing American workers. But now it has to stop...????

Don't think he works for CKE anymore....

Step 1 is to prove CKE Restaurants actually did outsource, and to find the actual press release that the Yahoo article refers to.

Get to it quickly !!

Not at all. It's like telling someone who is against welfare that they are a hypocrite for using it when it was available. If it's the best thing for you at the time and it's available, of course you do it, unless you're an idiot.

The point is understanding WHY it has been the best things for businesses to do and to come up with a remedy that makes it NOT the best thing for a business to do.

A combination of deregulation, reduction of bloated pay for workers in menial positions and import tariffs against countries with slave labor type wage laws make it a no brainer for companies to keep jobs here.

Hiring someone who kept workers here when it WASN'T the smart move given the conditions would be foolish, not the other way around.

was the final decision to outsource the jobs his?
I don`t know how that works maybe the decision was out of his hands.

I hope Trump's leadership works magic on some of these snake in the grass so and so's.

I also hope to see a couple your fired moments if they don't follow his leadership.

True, we are talking the weaponized media, who are owned by the wealthy and corps.

What does bloated pay mean?

If we left it to corps, we would all make 3rd world pay. But I suppose that is OK?

edit: the same CEO's that would cry about a contract for workers is the same CEO that has a signed contract for himself.
