WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- Business interests are vowing to fight President Obama's executive order imposing new restrictions on companies who want to do business with the federal government, the Hill reported.
Obama announced the action this week, ordering up new regulations that would require firms seeking federal contracts to disclose labor law violations and create new compliance advisers at agencies to oversee decisions about which firms get the work.
But contractors, already facing executive orders requiring them to pay a higher minimum wage and subjecting them to additional anti-discrimination rules, say the president went too far. -- Source
