no reporters who understand the complexity of the franchise relationship.
Andy Puzder is one smartest restaurant CEOs around and certainly the most
outspoken. In his WSJ editorial he describes the lunacy of the NLRB.

to contest—becomes the law of the land, it will be tantamount to
existing contractual relationship by government fiat in
ways the parties never
contemplated and to their mutual detriment."
