This rule increases federal contracting economy and efficiency by boosting worker productivity, reducing turnover and absenteeism, and decreasing training/supervisory costs. Increased earnings growth resulting from EO 14026 will help address income inequality and create more income security for federal contract workers, their families and their communities.
