The Philadelphia Business Journal piece featured Howard Schweitzer, managing partner of Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies, in a post-election piece, "Greater Philadelphia business leaders react to Trump's victory." Howard said that the country can expect substantial shifts in policy "from health care to energy to financial services issues." He added, "Everything is on the table and it creates opportunity to roll back some of the things that have been coming out of Washington that business feels are unfriendly." Howard also noted that while Trump will have to learn how to work with Congress, there are also changes he can accomplish unilaterally through his executive power. "An example [of this] would be labor policy. The overtime rule that raised the standard for which employees could receive time and a half pay. That's within the realm of the executive branch and he will have the business community in his face trying to influence him to make those type of changes and I think he will," Howard explained.
