Military Furloughs Affect Ellsworth AFB



Bookmark and Share

The military's plan to furlough civilian employees to save money will affect an estimated 566 workers at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota.

 

The Defense Department announced this week that it will furlough about 680,000 civilian employees across the country for up to 11 workdays. The move is in response to federal spending cuts.

 

Ellsworth Col. Kevin Kennedy says the furlough notices are expected to start going out May 28. Workers will have several days to seek appeals. The actual furlough period won't start until July 8.

 

Kennedy says the furloughs will impact the base's ability to carry out its mission.
