Trump regime kills employer wage gap info

Christian Science Monitor
The Trump administration has blocked a rule requiring United States employers to report detailed pay data broken down by gender and race, echoing business groups by saying it would not have the intended effect of addressing wage gaps.
The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission adopted the requirements last year under President Barack Obama, saying the information was necessary to identify and address discriminatory wage gaps. But the White House Office of Management and Budget in a memo on Tuesday said the rule was burdensome to companies and could pose privacy and confidentiality issues.

Governing by simply undoing all the good things your predecessor did has to be among the stupidest strategies of all time.
