As a government employee I am getting a lot of information about possible impacts from the financial mess that is going on. There is a possibility that we could be put on furlough one day a week for 22 weeks. That is a 20% pay cut for 11 pay periods. Ouch!
As long as my wife is back to work we should be able to handle it ok, but it got me thinking how many workers will be in real trouble. How would it impact you?
