Today is the start of unpaid furloughs for about 4,500 civilian employees at Scott Air Force Base in the Metro East.
For most workers at Scott Air Force Base--the 11 furlough days are being spread out in one-day-a-week increments for 11 weeks with many civilian workers opting for a 3-day weekend.
Lt. Korey Fratini tells the St. Louis Post Dispatch although the furlough days have been spread out it's still costing workers two weeks' pay. So, the base is offering financial and budgeting advice. Work normally done by furloughed workers are being picked up by remaining employees.
Also, Fort Leonard Wood in south-central Missouri is furloughing about 3,400 civilian workers under a similar 11-week process.
The furloughs are part of the sequester cost-cutting deal hammered out by the Obama Administration and Congress for the current fiscal year.
