Invasion From Greenland Inevitable

Nothing against any of these individuals workers, and it sucks that they're going to get an effective pay cut, but ZOMG WE HAVE 650,000 CIVILIAN DEFENSE WORKERS.

Furloughs for Department of Defense civilians begin Monday, a move that amounts to a 20 percent cut in pay for hundreds of thousands of defense workers over the next three months and will disrupt operations at installations around the country, Pentagon officials warn.

The furloughs, which were ordered by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel to meet mandated budget cuts forced by the sequester, will affect more than 650,000 civilian defense workers.

That doesn't include the contractors, of course.
