Interesting! I haven’t read everything regarding additional jobs during furlough’s but I did find this in one particular memo dated May 22, “executive branch-wide standards of ethical conduct and rules regarding outside employment continue to apply when an individual is furloughed (specifically, the executive branch-wide standards of ethical conduct, at 5 CFR Part 2635). In addition, there are specific statutes that prohibit certain outside activities.” If you have anymore insight, please share!
A “Furlough Garden” is a great idea, I wish I had land to grow one on. In regards to morale, I recently read an article on the WP Federal Diary called “Defense workers speak out about furloughs” which has many different takes on the morale problem that furloughs are causing.
