    President Donald Trump signed an executive order last week that undoes an order by his predecessor, Barack Obama, that extended workplace protections for women.

    Obama signed the 2014 Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces order after a Government Accountability Office investigation four years earlier found companies with workplace violations were being awarded millions in federal contracts.

    Trump’s order undoes paycheck transparency and a ban on forced arbitration clauses for sexual harassment, sexual assault or discrimination claims — which helped women workers remain safe on the job.

    “We have an executive order that essentially forces women to pay to keep companies in business that discrimination against them, with their own tax dollars,” said Noreen Farrell, director of the anti-sex discrimination law firm Equal Rights Advocates. “It’s an outrage.”

    Women’s rights advocates say forced arbitration, in particular, help keep sex discrimination cases out of court and off the public record — which is exactly what happened to claims filed by women who worked at Fox News.

    Trump’s order allows federal contractors to force sexual harassment cases — like the lawsuits against Ailes — into secret proceedings

    Awww boohoo, they're not happy how their tax dollars are being spent, welcome to the club.

    The solution which I've been preaching consistently for years is reduce tax, reduce goobermint, reduce regs. Then the sisters can get together form their own company and pay each other as much as they like.
