Getting Ready To Drain The Swamp: Trump Signs Executive Order Changing the Status of Many Federal Employees

The new order essentially moves certain executive branch “men and women in the Federal service employed in positions of a confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating character” to a new Classification F. This classification essentially moves these employees from union protections to “at-will” employees.
