Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's 'pathetic bow' to Political Correctness

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Scraps Employee Ratings To Avoid ‘Discrimination’

The CFPB, which oversees transactions in the financial sector for the federal government, decided to no longer conduct employee reviews because there were just too many apparent “significant disparities” between the races, ages, and locations of its employees.

According to American Banker, this new policy is set to cost over $5 million dollars, as it will now pay employees as if they received the highest evaluation score.

The Daily Mail tells the story better.  Everyone gets a perfect score! Federal financial agency ditches employee performance ratings after union members and minorities consistently perform worse

The annual performance reviews award scores on a scale from 1 to 5 and are closely tied to salary raises, bonuses and career advancement….'Hard-working, conscientious workers (and, yes, the federal government does have those) deserve to be treated better and paid more than workers who, say, persistently show up late and turn in shoddy work,' he added.

'Instead, in its pathetic bow to political correctness, the slackers are being rewarded.'

Hey, it's not their money.
