Are Furlough's in the DOD's Future?


Furloughs may still be in the DOD’s future.

Most of the department's civilian workforce was furloughed when the government shutdown began.

90% of those workers were recalled when the "Pay our Military Act" was passed.

While it provides appropriations for personnel, it doesn't provide any for equipment, supplies or other things the department needs to operate efficiently.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says if the shutdown continues, workers could see more furloughs.
