Critics Say New Trump Rule Gives Contractors More Freedom On Religious Discrimination
"Issued a rule that gives federal government contractors more freedom to discriminate and who they hire. The rule, which was in the works for over a year allows federal contractors that claim a religious mission to exclude job applicants who do not have particular religious beliefs. Here now to help us understand what this could mean is NPR's Tom Delton and Tom This is a rule from an outgoing administration. What's the story behind it? A lot of yet said it's the story of a really authority conflict on here it is, should we as a country guarantee that everyone be treated equally when it comes to employment opportunity, or do we as a country guarantee that under the First Amendment Everyone should be free to exercise their faith and act in accord with their own religious beliefs. Both important principles inevitably they come into conflict. Can you give an example? So you may have some employer with a religious identity, saying we shouldn't have to hire people who don't share our religious beliefs regarding sexuality and marriage. On the other side. In that situation, you could have LGBTQ people who would face discrimination, and it's been really difficult to reconcile this conflict through Legislation. So what's happened is we've had presidents setting policy on their own through presidential orders. President Obama said federal contractors can't discriminate in their hiring on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Now President Trump has basically reversed that order, saying some religious groups should be exempt from that order. Okay, Just so I'm clear that is the new rule. Yeah, it's actually as you suggested. It's been in the works for a while. I should also point out it's not entirely new there even under Obama's anti discrimination or there was a religious exemption. For example, that Jewish charity that provides some government services could require that its director be Jewish. But this rule expands that exemption significantly now, even a for profit business that simply claims a religious purpose qualifies. It could choose to hire only people that subscribe to a believe, for example, that marriage is the union of One man and one woman, or that there are just two genders, male and female. Is this something that
Trump order seeks to ban military, government contractors from some diversity training

Lost luggage: How lifesaving organs for transplant go missing in transit
"Roughly four years more than seven percent of shipments have transportation tation problem and when we count that up that included nearly one hundred and seventy organs that never got transplanted and almost three hundred and seventy that were delayed between two to twelve hours. This isn't a full picture. The data is from just one government contractor that moves human organs around. But what do you think I mean. Do those is number surprise you they horrify me. You're talking about hundreds of organs that have been recovered donors and their families. That have made this amazing gift and then they either don't make it in time and quite literally or thrown away or even the numbers. You mentioned al about getting there late if an Oregon comes hours later. Let's let's be clear. That has an implication for that patient. They could die year sooner because that organ was stuck on a plane or in transit. And they'll never ever no no one currently tracks Oregon's should there be someone doing this. Should there be a government agency that that looks into that. Well you know there's A. There's there's a web of organ procurement organizations or Opie owes than around the country. They're responsible for a lot of the tracking and then there's a government contractor. That's supposed to oversee all those fifty. The eight other government contractors. That's called Yunos and you know clearly. Something is going wrong if we're losing hundreds of organs a year Either because they've been thrown away or because they've gotten there so late that it's also going to affect patient outcomes and you can talk to surgeons. I talked to a surgeon recently. Who got a kidney not long ago and it arrived to her in a box with tire marks on it and when she opened it up it was the consistency of ground meat? She couldn't she couldn't use that. She had a patient on the table. Waiting thing for it and I talked to another surgeon recently. WHO's waiting for an organ and it went to a completely different airport in a completely different state? You know these. In the past to be honest I thought those were edge cases. I was more concerned about the organs not being recovered at all. Well on the back of your reporting I've two concerns one then being recovered and then to them getting into patients in a way that can save their life and maximize their life by getting there as quickly as possible. So I think what people who work for appeals would say is that those numbers are relatively low that there about twenty three thousand kidneys transplanted every year overall. And they're not saying it's not a problem but it's not a priority already problem. What do you think tell that to the hundred and thirteen thousand American families that are waiting to get a

Certainly there's a very intense micro economic story of those furloughed workers government contractors who are not receiving paychecks on a macroeconomic scale we've been through month-long shutdowns in the past. And it doesn't have a dramatic impact on the economy, and that's largely due to the fact that the income that is being missed will be paid retroactively when the government does reopened. And so that tends to minimize any sharp drop off in consumption, or or economic activity per se that being said the longer this goes on the more economic data were missing we might miss troubling signals that need to be addressed in the economy, or it's this cascades into a broader shut down of the economy, then it would become a big problem for the time being we're probably looking at just a drag of a couple of tenths on quarterly GDP one month in at is.

I went through was the Newt Gingrich shutdown which was before this one the longest one ever. And I was very lucky. It was early on in my career. So I was not contributing majority of income to the household. My husband had a good job at the time. It was just very stressful because I was home. I knew stuff was piling up. All I remember is ended up cleaning my house. In all of my nervous energy day. Remember running around the house cleaning, everything some of the shutdowns were we were very lucky. They were just like you. Now. Shuts down on Friday opens back up by Monday. But some of them went on for a while. Looking back on it.

So you know, we drive our cars till they literally fall apart in the driveway. We don't go on elaborate vacations. You know, we bought a house way back when thinking of Entschlie we would flip it for a bigger house. We've never done that. And it even affects me now. Even though I'm retired. I still kinda keep the expenses down as much as I can. We don't go out and go crazy. As I was listening to all of this shutdown information.
