Spending Cuts Could Cut Civilian Military Pay
This Friday, pay cuts could be coming to a military base near you. Fort McCoy's, Linda Fourier says sequestration and other budget cuts will have a devastating impact on military personnel if automatic spending cuts kick in.
She adds that defense related private sector jobs in Wisconsin also could be lost if Congress doesn’t stop sequestration by Friday. The furloughs would start in the last week of April and last for 22 weeks, according to the Pentagon plan.
