The White House has released its long-awaited broad blueprint for restructuring the federal government. The plan is short on details, but broad in scope — and if carried out, it would mean significant change for federal workers. The more dramatic moves include merging the Departments of Education and Labor, and shifting all major public assistance programs, including food stamps, into a bulked-up version of the Department of Health and Human Services. The plan would also rework how federal workers are managed by shifting many of the core duties of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to other government agencies. Kojo explores the plausibility and practicality of the proposed government makeover and what it means for federal workers.
