Comment: I have seen similar "layoffs" before

I have seen similar "layoffs" before

during my decades of military service. Note the language of the article: "contract and temporary" and "furloughed". Not one full time civilian employee will lose their job as a result of this. I also seriously doubt that all full time employees will be furloughed; some are considered "key and essential" personnel. Contract employees can be rehired in 30 days or less, and temporary employees can be rehired as quick as the civilian personnel office can complete the paperwork.

Magna est veritas, et prevalebit. Truth is most powerful, and will ultimately prevail.
