Every quarter is an adventure were I work. Sometimes you lose a week sometimes you don't. Tough to plan any thing around it.
I spent most of my money on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.

Sorry to hear, guys. I still can't believe we re-elected this clown. Let's hope things turn around soon for you in spite of the current political environment. We have too many good people out of work or underemployed these days!

Fed here.

I work at the same place as Scrubby.

Worst part is that both incomes in my household will be affected...

State here and we got hit with the furloughs a couple years back. Sucks cause like Mackofalltrades said, both incomes were affected. Don't think we'll get anymore though.

If they move forward with the one day a pay period thing, just remember you you lose pay, pension/TSP contributions AND you still have to pay your medical coverage, which further reduces the daily rate you receive for the other 9 days.

Gonna be awesome!

I watched the Town hall meeting Monday, it looks like they are trying everything possible to not have furlough days.. Cutting sevices, summer hires, temp positions and others were discussed.. I hope it doesnt come down to furlough days but I still say its a 50/50 shot..
