Editor,The article on the front page about HAFB forced furlough did not give the whole picture (July 7, "Real local furlough hit: $54M") HAFB employees being forced to take 11 days off without pay will affect the economy, but HAFB is not the only facility affected. IRS employees state-wide are also being forced to take at least five days off if not seven. There are many couples who work for the federal government who both will lose income because of these forced furloughs. These people support the local economy by buying groceries, gas, and other necessities. People need to contact their congressional representatives and let them know that this is unacceptable.
