White House Warns Staff of Pending Furloughs

Will have to take 10 days off without pay

|

Almost all of the 500 employees in the White House budget office have been told that they'll have to take unpaid days off because of the across-the-board budget cuts that took effect March 1.

Furlough notices went out last week to 480 workers at the Office of Management and Budget, saying they are required to take 10 days off between April 21 and Sept. 7, or one day per pay period, according to an OMB official, who asked to remain anonymous because a public announcement hasn't been made. The action was reported earlier by Politico.
