The union representing EEOC workers says President Trump's proposed 2020 budget would slash the civil rights agency's funding by nearly $24 million next year, even as the agency struggles to keep pace with rising workloads as more people file sexual harassment and other workplace discrimination claims.
Budget cut proposed in President Trump's 2020 budget will make fighting discrimination harder

President Trump’s proposed budget for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1 would slash the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s historically low budget by $23.7 million, which will make it harder for workers facing discrimination to get the help they need, the union representing EEOC workers said today.

“The EEOC enforces federal laws barring workplace discrimination, including sexual harassment, and cutting our budget frustrates those efforts,” said Gabrielle Martin, president of American Federation of Government Employees Council 216, the National Council of EEOC Locals. “Victims of workplace discrimination will feel the punch of this cut when they can’t get an appointment or an investigation of their complaint.”

The administration is proposing to slash EEOC’s current budget from $379.5 million to $355.8 million in fiscal 2020, even while the agency is facing rising workloads. EEOC had a backlog of 49,608 cases in fiscal year 2018, and cases continued to pile up while EEOC was closed during the 35-day shutdown. It takes workers months to get an appointment with EEOC and over an hour to reach a live person by telephone. EEOC’s workload this year included 200,000 inquiries, 76,418 charges, 40,000 interviews, and 105,600 calls.

Sexual harassment claims were up 13.6 percent in 2018. While Congress modestly increased EEOC’s budget in response to the #MeToo movement, the agency still has not been able to keep up with demand. Last year, the EEOC’s workforce dropped below 2,000 employees for the first time since before 1980. The president’s budget plan would slash another 180 positions, including mediators, judges, intake representatives, and 50 investigators. The agency’s budget justification concedes there will be a “steady rise in pending inventory” as “there will be no…

In 2018, Purina partnered with RedRover to provide grants to help domestic violence shelters to become pet-friendly.

Nestlé Purina PetCare Company continued its commitment to supporting individuals, communities and our planet in 2018 through providing more than $31 million in funding, Purina pet food and Tidy Cats litter to nonprofit organizations across the country.

“At Purina, we’re guided by a core belief that people and pets are better together,” said Joseph Sivewright, Purina CEO. “That’s why we’ve stepped up our commitment to organizations and programs that help keep people and pets together, as well as those that bring people and pets together through pet adoption and programing that promotes the benefits of pet ownership.”

  • Enabling Healthier and Happier Lives

Purina has long supported pet welfare organizations. In 2018 the company provided more than 12 million pounds of pet food and cat litter to pet shelters across the country. These donations provide high-quality nutrition to more than 187,000 pets through Purina’s Shelter Champion partners. The company also supports the Petfinder Foundation through a number of annual campaigns that generate grants for Petfinder shelters and subsidize more than $100,000 in pet adoption fees.
