Erich Wagner and Tom Shoop joined the podcast to discuss the OMB news in light of the workforce executive order.
When President Donald Trump signed the Executive Order creating the Schedule F classification, public administration experts and employee groups worried that agencies would throw a high percentage of employees into that designation in order to strip civil service protections of those employees. According to reports this week, at least part of that prediction is coming true at OMB.
Erich Wagner is a reporter at GovExec covering the federal workforce and Tom Shoop is executive vice president and editor in chief at Government Executive Media Group. They joined GovExec Daily to discuss the current and future status of Schedule F.
