FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) - Fewer furlough days will be given out to the 13,000 civilian workers at Wright Patterson Air Force base.
The Secretary of Defense announced Tuesday afternoon that furlough days for civilian employees would be cut from 14 days to 11 days. Originally that number was 22 days.
Officials at the base said this will have a huge impact on the Miami Valley even though it's fewer furlough days than expected.
Residents, business owners and restaurants in Fairborn believe 11 will still have an impact on their finances.
"I was a little dissatisfied with the whole thing," said Sharmayne Thrower, who just retired from Wright Patt. "I think there are a lot of people who are having trouble making it right now with the economy the way it is."
Thrower worked in international sales for 27 years. Thrower agrees 11 days is better than 14 but said she still feels for those who will be affected.
"If my children were not grown and they were in daycare that would be a whole different story. That would be a cut in my spending habits," said Thrower.
Tickets Pub and Eatery in downtown Fairborn believes it too will be impacted.
"Its really sad that they have to go through this," said Cheryl Abbitt. "Its really sad. Its going to hurt us. Its going to hurt everyone downtown."
