Coast Guard Takes Down Tip Sheet Suggesting Furloughed Employees Have Garage Sales, Baby-Sit
The U.S. Coast Guard took down a tip sheet suggesting thousands of furloughed employees supplement their income by having garage sales, baby-sitting and becoming a "mystery shopper." The Washington Post reported that the tip sheet, titled "Managing Your Finances During a Furlough," was posted on the website of the Coast Guard employee support program called CG SUPRT. According to the Post, after the newspaper inquired about the tip sheet the Coast Guard took down the document late Wednesday morning.
