On President Trump Approving the Repeal of the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order

Following President Trump’s decision to sign a resolution repealing the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order today, Christine Owens, executive director of the National Employment Law Project, released this statement:

“President Trump had a choice today to either back the rights of workers employed by federal contractors to safe and fair workplaces, or to side with corporations that steal workers’ wages and cut corners on safety. In signing the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution repealing common sense protections afforded by the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order, Mr. Trump cast his vote for big business.

“The Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order stands for the commonsense proposition that businesses profiting from the receipt of federal contracts should demonstrate that they follow the law.  The order simply required businesses to disclose any labor law violations when applying for large Federal contracts.

“By repealing these protections, Mr. Trump and congressional Republicans let contractors with even the worst track records off the hook – a punch in the gut to workers, taxpayers and law-abiding businesses.”
