ABSTRACT
The article presents the study conducted by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) which measures the extent of labor law violations by several federal contractors in the U.S. The GAO investigated federal contractors cited for violating federal labor laws enforced by the Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division (WHD), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Findings reveal that the government granted contracts to private companies which in the past had committed wage violations.
