Defense industry executives have spent the last few weeks warning that across-the-board budgets cuts that go into effect in January, could force them to issue notifications to employees in the fall to warn of impending layoffs.

Fear hinders hiring people with disabilities

This week is the two-year anniversary of President Barack Obama's executive order to hire 100,000 more people with disabilities into the federal government by 2015. But the government is not on track to meet that goal, only hiring 20,000 people with disabilities for fiscal 2010 and 2011 combined, according to the Office of Personnel Management. As of fiscal 2010, less than 1 percent of the federal workforce had a targeted disability.
