Scott Thomas started the topic YGL-LA: Furlough Friday Fun? When life gives you lemons… in the forum Young Government Leaders LA 6 years, 2 months ago
Personally, I’m stunned that Congress allowed sequestration and all it’s consequences to occur in these great United States Of America. But furlough’s have arrived and will continue throughout the summer (and beyond?). A 20% pay cut can really hurt, and helping out our fellow public servants goes without saying.
But for us lucky ones that don’t need to pick up a second job, we have an opportunity to make the most of a bad situation. We can update our resumes, volunteer more, catch up on our hobbies, spend time with family and friends, sharpen the saw, call your mom, clean the house, read more books, and so on. We have all no doubt thought about what we are going to do with our Furlough Fridays. Here at Los Angeles Air Force Base, many civilians are getting together at the beach this friday to kick-off Furlough Fridays. Luckily, the beach is free and nearby.
So what are your PLANS? Let’s revisit this topic at the end of September and see if you followed through on your Furlough Friday Plan.
I’ll get started: Spend time with YGL-LA, excercise more, read more books, relax at the beach.
