Pentagon Slashes 6% of Workforce

As a follow-up on this post, where I pointed out that the debt ceiling is taking its toll on the workers at the Pentagon, today we were notified that of the 800000 employees at the Pentagon, 46000 will be terminated as of today. Although this is but a small percentage (6%), it still points out that the budget of the U.S. is in trouble.

If the March deadline on $50 billion budget cut isn't resolved, Pentagon employees will have to work 1 day less each week from that day onwards.

The moral of the story is that money is critical for the defense sector of a country. No money means no security.
