Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Department of Labor Proposed Guidance on Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order

“This proposed rule will help ensure that businesses that contract with the federal government lift standards for their workers.  Companies that mistreat workers should not be rewarded with taxpayer dollars, and this rule will help weed out bad actors who profit by denying workers their right to a safe job and a decent wage.”
