According to reports on Tuesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has lifted the hiring freeze at the State Department.
As reported by thehill.com
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is lifting the hiring freeze on the Foreign and Civil Service imposed by his predecessor, Rex Tillerson.
In a memo, Pompeo announced he was authorizing the State Department to "hire to current funding levels."
"Earlier this month I directed that our employed family members would be treated fairly in seeking to use their skills to deliver our mission," Pompeo said in a memo obtained by The Hill.
"Today I am lifting the Department's hiring freeze on Foreign Service and Civil Service and authorizing the Department of State to hire to current funding level."
The move came just over two weeks after Pompeo lifted a hiring freeze on family members of State Department personnel posted overseas - another policy put in place by Tillerson that had deeply frustrated U.S. diplomats.
The hiring freeze that Tillerson enacted definitely drove down the morale at the State Department. Mike Pompeo is already doing great things
If Tillerson were still there he would probably be hanging out in an African Country somewhere.
