Someone really needs to confiscate Obama’s pen and phone.
According to Reuters, he plans to sign yet another executive order on Tuesday preventing “federal contractors from retaliating against workers who discuss their compensation.”
In other words, federal workers have free rein to gripe and complain about their wages, and supervisors cannot do anything about it.
The order stems from Obama’s “equal pay for women” soap box, and a White House official claims they just want “transparency." The only way for women to know if they are being discriminated against is if they poke and prod, asking nosy questions to their coworkers about their paychecks:
“The executive order does not compel workers to discuss pay nor require employers to publish or otherwise disseminate pay data,” the official said.
