We’ll Get the ‘Worst of the Worst’ for Labor Secretary

It’s not like if you run a fast food company you’re hiring graduates of MIT or people that were gonna go work for Microsoft, you know. In the employment pool, you’re hiring the best of the worst. You know, it’s kind of the bottom of the pool. And at Hardee’s it was so bad, we were hiring the worst of the worst and hoping they would stay.

— Labor Secretary nominee Andrew Puzder, quoted by CNN in 2011 speech.
