The Environmental Protection Agency at Lowest Levels of Employment

The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) employees are resigning in record numbers. More than 1,600 employees have left the EPA, almost 8% during President Trump’s administration.

Four hundred new employees have been hired, but the numbers are at his lowest since the 1980’s when Reagan was in office.

Through a FOIA request (Freedom of Information Act) by the Washington Post, 260 scientists, 106 engineers and 185 “environmental protection specialists” have resigned from the EPA.

The EPA has been in shambles ever since the appointment of Scott Pruitt, the former head of the EPA who resigned due to numerous pending investigations.
