The Obama administration has now proposed using federal contracts to favor employers with high wages and benefits. Not only will this slow the recovery from recession even further, it is a blatant attempt to decrease overall wealth to redistribute some to lower workers. I’ll tell you what- when the government has no financial problem and has some extra money laying around, then maybe it can spend a little more giving to workers (although it should be tax cuts). But how does Obama, faced with a recession and huge deficits, seriously think this is a good idea? Not to mention that it has a huge negative impact on efficiency, just like everything else they have been coming out with recently.
