DOD: Sequestration would cost California workers

California workers would earn approximately $420 million less in payroll if sequestration cuts go into effect, according to estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Department of Defense.

Sequestration is a series of budget cuts that are set to go into effect if Congress cannot hammer out a long-term budget deal by March 1.

One of those cuts would be a maximum of 22 furlough days for some civilian workers in the Department of Defense. Nationwide, these furloughs could result in almost $4.6 billion in payroll deductions.
