  • Sequester hurts small firms the most, experts say
    Small defense firms, which depend upon a limited number of contracts for their revenue, will be hit hardest by sequestration, say experts, as they are less able to sustain the loss in cash flow than their larger counterparts. "I guarantee you that some firms will go out of business as a result of sequestration," said Mark Drever, president of Virginia-based Xcelerate Solutions, a small firm that relies on the Pentagon for about half of its business.

  • Hawaii will bear heavy sequester hit, military says
    Hawaii will be the state most affected by sequestration job losses, military leaders say, because the cuts will furlough about 20,000 civilian employees, about 3.2% of the state's jobs, and because military spending in the state is so significant. "Likely impacts include reduced spending at restaurants, decisions to defer major purchases, and reduced spending on clothing, dining out and recreational activities," said Col. David Tagg, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific. "Each dollar not spent by a furloughed employee represents lost revenue for the state."
