This means they get a day off without pay they don't work for free do they. Look at private sector. Many if not most are working more days with less pay there is a difference duh. Seen the news lately?<quoted text>
Every civilian employee at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Payed attention to the news lately? Furlough ring a bell?
Furlough is not a cut in pay it is a reduction in their contracted days of work. Less pay for the less days not at all the same as a cut in pay. Name one that has a cut in pay and worked the same # of days, name one.
