Fort McCoy Prepared for Furloughs

(2/26/13) Wisconsin's largest military base is ready to put 15-hundred civilian employees on
furloughs, as part of the impending federal spending cuts.

Fort McCoy near
Sparta says it has a plan to cut the employees' pay by 20-percent, by putting
them on unpaid furloughs for one day a week. It's part of the 85-million-dollars
in automatic federal spending cuts due to take effect on Friday, unless Congress
acts before then. President Obama wants more tax increases as part of a
last-minute congressional package. But Republicans have said the tax hikes
adopted in the fiscal cliff legislation two months ago are enough for now.
