From the hiring freeze to the illegal executive orders targeting workplace rights, the Trump administration’s repeated attacks on federal employees and unions have taken their toll.
According to a new employee satisfaction survey, “employee engagement” declined at 59.1% of federal agencies.
A few notable findings:
“Mr. Trump’s war on the hardworking public servants that keep our country safe and running is felt at nearly every level of our civil service, from emboldened managers making it harder for our members to do their jobs, to his war on rights in the workplace,” said AFGE President J. David Cox Sr. “It takes a toll on the worker and on employee morale.”
The Department of Veterans Affairs, which repeatedly attacks its own workforce, did not participate in this year’s survey.
