Trump Administration Lifts Hiring Freeze

Posted by Raw Editor on April 12, 2017 in politics |

New guidance from the Trump administration out Wednesday will officially end the federal hiring freeze implemented days after the president took office.“This does not mean that the agencies will be free to hire willy-nilly,” Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters ahead of the formal release.Instead, agencies are instructed to act wherever possible to bring their workforce size and activities in line with Trump’s fiscal 2018 budget plan, which called for deep cuts to nearly every corner of the government and elimination of numerous programs.Of course, the president’s budget request is merely a proposal, and it is congressional appropriators who will do much of the heavy lifting when it comes to how the government spends its money.By the end of June, agencies are directed to report to OMB with a draft of their long-term restructuring plans and the status of their “progress on near-term workforce reduction actions,” according to the guidance.
