Pentagon Recalls Nearly 400,000 Employees Back to Work
FAIRBORN -- Saturday's progress at the Capitol and the Pentagon could mean thousands of furloughed workers at Wright-Patt may soon head back to work.
"I watched the lights being dimmed to save money, I watched the air condition go down to save energy and money. I watched the commissary be closed," Sandra Rokette, Owner of Flags By Sandra, said Saturday.
Even though Saturday's big moves could turn those light back on next week, just how many of Wright-Patt's furloughed workers will return to work still remains unseen.
The Pentagon announced it will bring most of its 400,000 furloughed civilian employees back to work, after concluding that it has legal authority to do so.
Right now the Pentagon is working on a list of who will be recalled. Early indications would show that all healthcare, training, commissary, payroll, and administrative personnel would be eligible to return to work.
But even with news of the pending recall, for some, the wounds inflicted this week are still open.
Like bitter Veteran George Brett who showed up to a shut down Air Force Muesem.
"I came all the way from Arizona to come here and I paid for this reunion at Wright-Patt and its not available," Brett lamented.
Air Force Veteran Randy Getz says the five day (and counting) shutdown is a waste of time.
"It's like an unscheduled paid vacation, " Getz said, "Why are we doing this if things are going to return to normal quickly and were not going to make any gains on the budget and what the big issues are?"
Wright-Patt's P.R. personnel are furloughed and were unavailable for comment at the time this article was written.
