Do you or anyone you know work as a civilian at Fairchild Air Force Base?
It may be a tough week ahead if Congress doesn't come up with a solution to the “fiscal cliff” deficit deadline.
A Wall Street Journal article notes that the Pentagon would notify up to 800,000 civilian workers to brace for furloughs in the frst month of 2013 if no solution to the deficit issue is found.
Those workers, if affected, would need to take mandatory leave without pay for a certain period. Those furloughs would be of unlimited duration, depending on how Congress resolves the standoff.
Here's the Sunday afternoon update on where those talks are, compliments of the Washington Post.
