From Fox News:
Officials at military bases and other DoD facilities will have some flexibility in scheduling days off. But the furloughs will nevertheless result in non-essential civilian workers missing one paid workday a week -- a roughly 20 percent pay cut -- over the next three months.
And how many of these civilian jobs are redundant and need to be eliminated? The government is to big, all of it. So, suck it up people, because if it was up to me all the agencies would go bye bye! I'm only sorry that they started and maybe finished at the Defense Dept, it should start at the executive branch, starting with President "Caesar" Obama.
