Trump blocks Obama rule on collecting info on pay by race, gender


Trump’s administration has announced that The White House will shut down an Obama-era rule that required businesses to track how muchthey pay workers of different genders, races and ethnicities according to a new report.

The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, reported that Trump officials will remove the rule, which would have gone into effect in March 2018, adding that the rule created a burden for employers.

Neomi Rao, administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs said:”It’s enormously burdensome”. “We don’t believe it would actually help us gather information about wage and employment discrimination.

“The Obama rule would have required employers with 100 ormore employees to hand over data on wages to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission with the goal of preventing pay discrimination.

Ivanka Trump, who is serving as an unpaid adviser to her father in the White House and has pushed for equal pay for women, said in a statement that the “policy would not yieldthe intended results.”

“We look forward to continuingto work with EEOC, OMB, Congress and all relevant stakeholders on robust policies aimed at eliminating the gender wage gap.”
