OC Weekly's Gabriel San Roman got to digging into the archives of Cal State Fullerton's Center for Oral and Public History, where he found a 2009 interview (not available online) with Puzder.
Mother Jones According to San Roman, Puzder "complained about regulations and overtime laws, claiming workers are overprotected." San Roman adds, quoting from the interview:
"Have you ever been to a fast food restaurant and the employees are sitting and you're wondering, 'Why are they sitting?'" Puzder asked. "They are on what is called a mandatory break [emphasis his]." He shared a laugh with the interviewer, saying the so-called nanny state is why Carl's Jr. doesn't open up any new restaurants in California anymore.
