house Bill H.R. 135

Changing How Federal Agencies Deal With Workplace Discrimination

Argument in favor

This bill increases federal agencies’ ability to take action against discrimination and retaliation. Everyone deserves to feel safe in the workplace, especially when they are reporting instances of discrimination or retaliation.

Argument opposed

Discrimination and retaliation in the workplace are bad things, yes. But there are already departments tasked with enforcing these rules in the federal government. Creating more bureaucracy isn’t the answer.

This seems to be another farce the Dems are brewing; basically trying to “chase the ambulance” on everything that resembles “a cause.” Isn’t there already a law that protects employees from reprisals?

Why are we voting on bills that already exist in this area just more redundancy.

No. Make it purely based on behavior. Are you doing the job or not?
