The AP is reporting that an executive order requiring paid sick leave for employees of federal contractors will be signed this Labor Day. It is being reported that The Labor Department said, “any costs would be offset by savings that contractors would see as a result of lower attrition rates and increased worker loyalty, but produced nothing to back that claim up”. Under the executive order, starting in 2017 employees working on federal contracts gain the right to a minimum of one hour of paid leave for every 30 hours they work. Stretched out over 12 months, that's up to seven days per year.
