Pentagon Likely to Cut Furlough Days
More than 3,000 civilian employees at Fort Campbell might not be taking as big a financial hit as originally thought, as Pentagon leaders scrimp to find up to $900 million in savings.
Defense officials tell the Associated Press that department civilians will likely face up to five fewer unpaid furlough days than originally planned.
The officials say no final decisions have been made, but they believe civilian workers will take six to eight unpaid days off rather than 11. About 650,000 department civilians have been taking one furlough day each week since early July. The furloughs were expected to save roughly $2 billion.
