More Furloughs at WPAFB as Government Shutdown Looms
WRIGHT PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE -- About 8,700 Wright-Patterson Air Force Base employees will be forced to stay home if the federal government shuts down on Tuesday.
Medical staff, public service, security and some intelligence employees will remain working, and will be paid on IOUs until the shutdown is over.
This possible emergency furlough would begin immediately on Oct. 1 and will last until Congress figures out how to fund the government.
Col. Cassie Barlow said the idea of yet another furlough is depressing for Wright-Patt employees who just suffered through unpaid furlough days this summer.
"Some of our employees just went through that and are still recovering from that time and are still working on bank accounts from just a few weeks ago," she said.
The United States Air Force Museum would be closed because a government shutdown would mean the closing of all national parks, zoos and museums.
"I think it's going be bad for everyone, little children who want to go to museums, and see their history, its going to be closed!" Carol Weiher said.
Those planning on traveling overseas will have a difficult time getting passports, complicating travel plans for hundreds of thousands of people.
"It's going to be a mess and it's not fair. It's not going to be very good if they shut everything down," Bonnie Serow said.
But many people remain hopeful that none of this will happen and a divided Congress can come to a resolution before Tuesday.
"I'm hoping they will come to an agreement," Weiher added.
