Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says there are signs that government contractors and businesses that depend on the federal salary dollar are starting to feel the squeeze too. And not in places you would readily suspect.

Scholars at American University are suggesting that one way to relieve sequester stress and increase productivity is to create stronger work relationships. Robert Tobias and Patrick Malone at AU's Department of Public Administration and Policy suggest taking time out to talk about employees' feelings.
Furloughs have hit half the federal workforce, and the financial impact has been hard on many of them. But for many members of the federal family, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says, the worst may be yet to come — things like layoffs and cutbacks in the federal retirement and health insurance programs in the new fiscal year.

Are the media -- people like us -- paying too much attention to the reality of furloughs and the possibility of layoffs in the federal workforce? At what point does the constant reporting fall into the category of beating a dead horse? Or is this one still worth tracking. You tell us, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
