May 1, 2013 -- This week on "Your Turn", John Grobe, owner of Federal Career Experts, joins host Mike Causey to talk about how federal contractors are being impacted by furloughs.

Later in the show, Stephen Losey and Sean Reilly from the Federal Times will discuss the sharp drop-off in hiring, OPM's progress in reducing the retirement processing backlog, the furlough hall pass for FAA controllers, the big drop in charitable contributions by feds and how well (or not) agencies shared information following the Boston Marathon bombing.

Listen if you can (1500 AM or online), and if you have questions email them to me at mcausey@federalnewsradio.com or call in during the show at (202) 465-3080. The show will be archived here.
