Federal contractors are biggest labor law violators, study shows
A report from the Associated Press on Thursday, December 12 revealed the federal government spends more than half a trillion dollars in contracts granted to employers who consistently violate health, safety and wage laws.
This came after a study commissioned by the Democratic administrators on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee, which concluded that 30% of the biggest violators of labor regulations were also granted federal contracts from 2007 to 2012.
Iowa Senator and chair of the Committee Tom Harkin fears that U.S. taxpayers pay companies that fall short in giving rightful pay and providing safe workplace.
