Washington, July 19 (RHC)-- In the United States, on Capitol Hill, Senate committees are holding hearings on President Donald Trump’s proposal to reorganize the federal government.  Trump’s plan includes merging the Labor Department with the Education Department, privatizing the U.S. Postal Service and radically transforming the Interior Department. 

Union and workers organizations are strongly opposed to the plan.  In response to Trump’s proposal, the American Federation of Government Employees says: “There’s little reason to believe this reorganization plan is anything more than a scheme to eliminate essential programs and public-service jobs, reward or punish political appointees … and privatize government programs to reward political donors.”
