Furloughs created by across-the-board federal spending cuts will hit more than 1 million workers across U.S. agencies in less than three weeks, officials said.

The furloughs were expected to be spread across the board but federal employees have learned that administering the furloughs is uneven, The Washington Post reported.

The furloughs are expected to begin in about three weeks and affect about half of the federal workforce of 2 million people, officials said.
