President Donald Trump signed a series of executive orders on Friday that will expedite the process of terminating “poor performing” federal government employees.
The new rules will “require all federal employees to devote at least 75 percent of their work hours for agency purposes, senior administration officials said.
J. David Cox Sr., president of the American Federation of Government Employees, says the new rules are against the interest of everyday Americans.
In signing the three orders, President Trump is acting where Congress has failed.
A senior Trump administration official told Bloomberg that the new rules “achieve a similar aim.”
