The Bayonet: Fort Benning braces for civilian furloughs

A Fort Benning GS-9 federal employee could expect to see $600-$800 less in monthly take-home pay if Congress does not avert sequestration in the coming days. Civilian employees could be furloughed for 22 discontinuous days — roughly a day per week — beginning in April and face a 20 percent loss in income under sequestration. These automatic across-the-board spending cuts will be triggered Friday unless Congress agrees to an alternative.
