US Dept of Labor suspends affirmative action



Today, I learned that the Department of Labor is suspending its affirmative action guidelines. For decades we have fought to ensure that minority and women owned businesses were given the opportunity to work on federal, state, and local projects...


... Now with the stroke of a pen, the @USDOL has decided that one way to overcome this crisis is to suspend fairness rules on these projects. This is a further expression of the racism evidenced by the Trump Administration...


...On the day the Senate passed the largest economic stimulus package in American history, the Administration has decided now is the time to cut out women and minority owned businesses.

4. I read elsewhere where he suspended EPA enforcement of enviromental rules.

What's next, suspending clean air and water regulations? This has Miller's stink about it.

2. He's using this for campaigning purposes.

Disaster translates to releasing protections.


Impeach Trump.

9. Look for many more of these insidious carve outs that

take advantage of the nation's focus on the corona virus to exploit the Republican wish list. In another incidence they struck abortion, and now this. I'm sure there are other things they have already got their claws into, taking of the misery of others.
