Can You Believe This Number?Submitted by LapHog on Wed, 05/15/2013 - 22:33
The Pentagon is ordering furloughs of 680,000 civilian workers in an effort to save $1.8 billion of the $37 billion in spending cuts it must make this year.
I'm sorry, but someone tell me.... How many employees does your company have?
Cuz the Pentagon has 680,000.... THAT THEY CAN FURLOUGH.
Check your pockets. If they're empty, there's a good chance it's because 680,000 Pentagon employees have your money.
A furlough is hardly far enough.
Say that number out loud, folks.
About 68,500 of 750,000 civilian Defense Department employees who are eligible for furloughs will be exempted, according to Hagel’s memo...
I'm sorry, make that 750,000.
