Yesterday, the United States Senate barely passed legislation that encourages corporations to violate the rights of their employees, to break the law, and to hide that information from the public.
The Federal Acquisition Regulation for Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces didn’t require anything unreasonable. It merely required corporations applying to do work with the U.S. federal government to reveal any instances within the previous three years in which they were found to have violated the law by abusing their workers.
Yesterday, the Senate passed H.J. Res 37, a resolution that eliminates this requirement. Not one senate Republican had the courage to vote against this resolution.
