Obama orders new plan to diversify federal workers
Associated Press ^ | August 18, 2011 | SUZANNE GAMBOA

Posted on 08/18/2011 2:21:45 PM PDT by reaganaut1

President Barack Obama has signed an executive order directing the federal government to design a new strategy for hiring, promoting and keeping workers of diverse backgrounds. The three-page order released Thursday directs the head of the Office of Personnel Management, a deputy director at the Office of Management and Budget and two other agencies to develop the strategy within 90 days. Agencies then have 120 days to implement it. An Office of Personnel Management report says that in fiscal year 2010, the federal workforce was 66.2 percent white, 17.7 percent black, 8 percent Hispanic, 5.6 percent Asian/Pacific Islander, 1.8 percent Native American. It was 56.1 percent male.

Just what we need, more racial quotas. Probably they think the "problem" is that there are too many white and not enough Hispanic federal workers.

Don’t forget—he wants to make sure they only hire union workers, too.

Per OPM statistics, it looks like the federal workforce already represents the national racial distribution accurately. But that’s not good enough! No, we have to have more racial minorities in federal jobs than in the general population. (shaking my head) So much for my hope of getting a federal job.

This is what you call a “jobs for minorities” program. Just one of the many services that will be brought to you by your new Department of Jobs.

I wonder if they intend to do anything about the ideological makeup? 99.9% of Federal employees are entitlement socialists

Offensive racism.

How many of you think that in this day and age, the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT is failing to hire or retain minorities, women, etc.?

Is there any reason on Earth to think the Federal Government discriminates against its workers? Is it known for being a white male racist clique? Keep spending money liberals on problems that don’t exist.

Obama is all geared up to let the USPS, the largest employer of African Americans in the country, go bust ~ and that’s because of the $100,000,000,000 borrowed from them to loan to his international banker buddies.

It's more than just employment. In O's view of a transformed America, everything is directed from the top, i.e., from the Federal government. Making the Federal workforce a minority dominated workforce -- both through hiring, promotion, and white attrition policies -- effectively establishes a minority ruling class in many areas.

I had thought there were 18% black. Just looked, it’s about 12, 13.

I’m sure that Obama is not concerned that there are TOO MANY blacks in fedgov.

The stock market is tanking, Israel is being bombed from Egypt, the world is on the brink of a worldwide depression and this is what Obama is worried about? Too many white people in government jobs.

Way to ramp up the race war the Dems need for 2012. Put this story together with the DHS stopping deportation and you've got quite an ugly agenda. He is literally changing our culture by flooding us with foreigners, and then putting them in positions of authority over the native born, english speaking, taxpaying citizenry. Sounds like Rev. Wright thought up this plan to me.

Today has been a busy day. Obama also just issued what amounts to an amnesty by Executive Order. This is just another EO to divide and polarize. The federal government has the most diverse workforce of any organization in the country. In fact, blacks are overrepresented. This is all part of his election strategy to energize minorities.

Hispanics can be of any race. 54% of Hispanics self-identify as white. I wonder how the government decides if you are Hispanic or not. One drop rule?

Blacks make up 12.6 percent of the population,

but they’re 17 percent of the federal employee labor force. Seems to me, they’re already overrepresented in the federal employee workforce.

WEll, guess they gotta hire more whites and less blacks - if you go by percentages;

If they have almost 18% blacks and 65% whites - when the population is only 12.3 black and 75.1 white - whites and Hispanic are underrepresented and black overrepresented. (Hispanic only at 8% in Fed Gov't but 12.5 in population.

So blacks are hired at a higher rate than others.

http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0762156.html

Yep, Time to correct that. (I'm SURE that's what O'Bummer is aiming at.)

We need to send the link to this chart to all our reps - and FOX - Rush - et al. Maybe SOMEONE will bring this out.

I doubt that. Can’t find a copy of the actual order but from the commentary it looks like this is directed at increasing diversity across labor categories and at higher pay grades. IOW, not enough women and minority engineers especially at the GS-15 level.

Actually - the Hispanic is equal to racial makeup - but blacks are only 12.5 of the general populations and whites are 75.1.

Ergo - gotta cut done on blacks and up on whites.

I'm sure that's what will happen. - s/
