Fort Stewart families brace for furlough impacts | savannahnow.com

FORT STEWART, Ga. (AP) — More than 3,000 civilians working for the Army in southeast Georgia are bracing for a painful cut to their paychecks expected to cost the workers roughly $10 million overall.

Civilian employees of Fort Stewart and neighboring Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah will begin taking one furlough day per week next month and continue through September. That means they’ll lose 20 percent of their pay for nearly three months because of the automatic federal budget cuts that kicked in months ago.
