650,000 Government employees furloughed

Starting Monday 650,000 U.S. Defense Department employees will be furloughed. The move stems from the sequester.

Civilian Pentagon workers will be forced to take one unpaid day off each week. This will result in a 20 percent reduction of their income.

It will last until September 21.

On March 1, $85 billion in federal spending cuts began. The furloughs are expected to save nearly $2 billion in defense spending.
