Obama administration efforts to change labor policies through executive actions are being unraveled by legal and political forces, according to a new report.
The right-leaning American Action Forum (AAF) found that five major policies changes implemented by the Obama administration have been challenged by the courts, the Trump administration and Congress.
“Through multiple executive actions, the Obama Administration attempted to raise wages and empower collective bargaining,” Ben Gitis, AAF’s labor policy director, wrote in the report to be released Wednesday.
“Each of the five regulations highlighted in this report, however, has been repealed in the courts, has been reversed by the Trump Administration, or faces an uncertain future in Congress,” Gitis wrote.
