President Obama avoids Congress using the federal government’s vast array of contractors to  fulfilled rules on wages, pay disparities and hiring on a segment of the private sector that gets taxpayer money and falls under his control. Obama plans to issue an order to stop federal contractors from retaliating against workers who discuss their pay. He will also give the labor department new rules requiring federal contractors to provide compensation data that includes a breakdown by race and gender.

In a separate action , he will share more than 1000 million in grants to redesign themselves to better prepare high school students for college or for careers. Money for the program comes from fees that companies pay for visas to hire foreign workers for specialized jobs.

Is Obama pushing his executive power too far? In my opinion  he might be, but at least its for a good purpose.
