In a “yuge” win for those Americans who seek accountability and efficiency in government, President Donald Trump signed three executive orders Friday that made it significantly easier for lousy federal employees to be “drained” from the swamp.
Prior to Friday, it took “6 months to 1 year to remove a tenured Federal employee for poor performance, plus an average of 8 more months to resolve appeals,” according to a White House press release.
That’s a long time …
“These executive orders will make it easier for agencies to remove poor-performing employees and ensure that taxpayer dollars are more efficiently used,” Andrew Bremberg, the director of the Domestic Policy Council, reportedly said.
The efficiency will be obtained from the stipulations Trump imposed on unions.
Prior to Friday, an estimated 470 employees with the beleaguered Department of Veterans Affairs were wasting their entire workday performing work for their labor union.
The president’s executive orders also mandate the creation of a Labor Relations Working Group to more quickly negotiate contracts with labor unions and, hopefully, save taxpayers some money.
