Did you know? The White House wants to cut the U.S. Department of Labor’s budget by 10%. President Trump’s budget request seeks $10.9 billion for DOL activities in fiscal year 2020, about $1.9 less than FY 2019.

However, a handful of DOL functions would see budget increases.

  • $558 million for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration represents a slight increase
  • $233 million for the Wage and Hour Division to enforce minimum standards for wages and working conditions in U.S. workplaces
  • $3.6 million increase over FY 2019
  • $194 million for the Employee Benefits Security Administration
