Furloughs for Marine Corps
Logistics Base workers could start in less than two months.
About 2,000 workers at the

that starts in July as part of the sequester budget cuts.
The Marine Corps is still
working on a list of critical service providers that will not have to take the
"It's going to affect
approximately 2,000 employees here aboard the installation. There is also going to be emergency personnel
of different types and other critical personnel that may be exempt from it,
however that list has not been finalized," said Captain Joe Thomas.
The furlough program is
slated to begin July 8th. Base officials say they're doing all they can to keep
employees informed and to prepare them for the furloughs.
