Civilian workers at Ft. Hood and Ft. Bliss warned of furloughs


Civilian workers on Fort Hood and Fort Bliss received warning of furloughs earlier this week.

The notice warns employees that they will be forced to stay at home without pay one day each week from April 22 until Sept 21. They will receive a 20% pay cut for 5 months, and will not be allowed to take vacation time to make up for the lost days.

Six hundred employees in the State of Texas will have to go on unpaid furloughs. They will either have to take Monday or Friday off, depending on the supervisor's need.

The first furlough notices were sent out earlier this week across the nation. Last Friday President Obama signed an order of $85 billion of cuts from federal budgets this fiscal year.
