Furlough days cut at Ohio base, other installations



Published: Wed, August 7, 2013 @ 12:45 p.m.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Thousands of civilian employees at Ohio largest military base will have their furlough days cut nearly in half.

The Pentagon announced that mandatory days off without pay will be reduced from 13 to six for about 10,000 civil service workers at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton.

The reduction of unpaid days off applies to 650,000 civilian workers throughout the Department of Defense. They were made necessary by a mid-year $37 billion budget cut.

A base spokeswoman tells The Dayton Daily News that furloughs that began the week of July 8 will end by Aug. 17. The loss of total wages at the base is estimated to be around $21.8 million.

Base officials say the time off has caused a work backlog in many departments.

Must have been the republicans who have bases in their districts. They found some money. I bet that does not sit well with the Tea Party.
