WASHINGTON, Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Latino Coalition (TLC), the leading national non-partisan advocacy organization representing Hispanic businesses and consumers, issued the following statement today regarding President-Elect Donald J. Trump's appointments of Linda McMahon as Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration and Andrew Puzder as Secretary of the Labor Department:
"The Latino Coalition commends President-Elect Donald J. Trump's appointments for U.S. Small Business Administrator and Labor Secretary," said Hector Barreto, The Latino Coalition Chairman and former U.S. Small Business Administrator. "Linda McMahon as U.S. Small Business Administrator is the real deal— a woman who understands what it takes to grow a business into a true American dream of tremendous success. McMahon is a risk taker and a patriot, someone with real life experience and understanding that small business owners are unique contributors to our economy, and they face unique challenges. President-Elect Trump's Andrew Puzder pick as Labor Secretary is the ideal candidate with a long-standing conservative agenda on minimum wage, a promoter of free markets and a champion seeking to save our shrinking labor force. This dynamic duo is exactly what America needs right now— strong advocates for the engine of our economy!"
