Michael Gessel http://wyso.org en Gov't. Shutdown May Have Long Term Consequences http://wyso.org/post/govt-shutdown-may-have-long-term-consequences <p>The government shutdown continues, as do the furloughs affecting civilian employees at Wright-Patterson. One estimate has put the economic impact at $5 million per furlough day that the region loses. Nearly 9,000 base employees are currently out of work.</p><p>The news in the short-term is certainly not good. Michael Gessel with the Dayton Development Coalition says to put that into perspective, &quot;it would be the same economic impact if LexisNexis, Honda and AK Steel closed down and let everybody off.&quot;</p> Sat, 05 Oct 2013 12:59:46 +0000 Emily McCord 40183 at http://wyso.org Gov't.
