Federal Contractors Are Offshoring at a Fast Clip Under Trump

Despite President Donald Trump’s promises to bring millions of jobs back to the U.S., corporate contractors for the government have been “outsourcing” positions at a speedy pace, according Good Jobs Nation, an organization that advocates for contract workers.

In the year since Trump’s election, the federal government has certified that 93,449 jobs were lost to outsourcing or trade competition, the labor group said in an analysis of data from the Labor Department’s Trade Adjustment Assistance program and Treasury’s USASpending.gov database.
