The consequences of sequestration are going to ripple for months.
(Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on Monday said it plans to shut its doors for a total of seven days between May and September due to budget cuts and will furlough more than 9,000 employees on those days. [...]
The seven furlough days will be spread out, according to HUD, and will impact HUD’s work force at its main headquarters and all 80 field offices.
All employees will be impacted, and only staffers considered as critical would be required to work during designated closure days.
Losing seven day’s pay means very little to those whom these cuts will have no effect on, but it means a lot to the working-class people who will be furloughed. This will also effect those who require the services of the Housing Department.
