    (The Hill) The Trump administration is making it harder for franchise employees to sue corporations over their wages.

    The Department of Labor issued a rule on Sunday that makes it harder to prove that companies are responsible when individual franchise owners or contractors violate wage laws.

    Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia said in a statement that the rule responds to the president’s aim to reduce regulations that limit economic growth.

    “By giving greater clarity to businesses who want to work together, we promote an entrepreneurial culture that has driven American prosperity for decades,” Scalia said.
