Biden fires Trump’s labor appointees

President Joe Biden has asked for the resignation of the entire Federal Service Impasse Panel, a group charged with handling disputes between employee unions and agency negotiators, Federal Times reports.

All 10 members of the panel were appointed by the Trump administration and had frequent issues with union officials who contend that the panel’s rulings favored Trump’s 2018 workforce executive orders, which imposed significant restrictions on unions and collective bargaining rights, the article notes.

The report goes on to say that because members of the panel do not require Senate confirmation, the new president can seat new members as soon as he determines who he wants to serve on the panel.

I we managed to have have a at least a couple Trumpists post. That is as is as it should be. It is a free Country. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Even those options that are lies or based on lies.

Bottom line: Fair treatment of all employees. Non-partisan leaders and staffers are to do their work for all Americans, not just a favored sector. Out with bias; in with data-driven facts, fairness, and transparency.

Well, at the first impeachment trial for the loser, the losers said don’t impeach and let the voters decide. Well, the voters decided and sent a message to the loser “you’re fired “. It doesn’t matter if the election was stolen or if there’s voter fraud, because the loser is fired. Saying that, the rest of the losers must also be fired. America is great and has always been great. The losers are not great and they are acting the part. Anyone that don’t agree with President Biden is a loser

Biden is a prop for the Democrats. He was a moderate, like most people in the US, but he's now a shell for these progressive policies that will be the downfall of our country for at least four years. It's unfortunate.

How many Americans is that jack Biden put out of work. He doesn’t deserve the title that the US has blindly given him. I still believe and will always believe he stole the election.
