Joe Biden snuck in yet another Executive Order this week.
This time, it was to create more diversity in the federal workforce.
The White House, in supporting the EO, stated that “too many underserved communities remain under-represented.”
All government agencies will now have 100 days to review how these agencies can better diversify to meet the goals of the EO.
The order states, “As the nation’s largest employer, the federal government must be a model for diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, where all employees are treated with dignity and respect.
“Accordingly, the federal government must strengthen its ability to recruit, hire, develop, promote, and retain our nation’s talent and remove barriers to equal opportunity.”
Fox News further reported, “The executive order establishes an initiative led by the Office of Personnel Management and the Office of Management and Budget to advance employment opportunities among people of color, women, first-generation professionals and immigrants, individuals with disabilities, LBGTQ+ individuals, Americans from rural areas, older Americans, and others.”
According to the latest data provided by the Office of Personnel Management, 36.7 percent of the current workforce was comprised of minorities, with black staffers accounting for 18.2 percent and Latino and Hispanic staffers representing 8.8 percent.
Based on the United States census report, that number is actually more than the current U.S. population.
In fact, if anyone should be upset, it would be the Hispanic and Latino population, which compromises 18.5 percent of the population, yet holds only half that percentage in terms of government positions.
The black population in the country currently makes up for 13.4 percent of the population, yet holds 18.2 percent of federal jobs.
One might go so far as to say Joe Biden is again pandering to minorities in this country to score votes, but we would dare not go that far.
