Government Furloughs

Furloughs mean doing less with less. That's the gist of Pentagon guidance to Defense agencies facing civilian employee furloughs. A new memo reminds agency managers they are barred from shifting work to military members or to contractors. And they're not allowed to force civilians still on the job to work longer hours to compensate for their furloughed colleagues. In fact, those returning from furlough can't be forced to work longer hours to make up for their unpaid time off. The first of 11 DoD furloughs is scheduled for Monday.

This is an attempt to make sure the public feels the little cuts. We should have cut bigger and deeper. This cheap parlor trick will only fool some.
