Abstract : The Department of Defense employs about one million civilian employees in various occupations, including clerks, blue-collar workers, engineers, analysts, executives, and technicians. The reduction in defense-related jobs has caused painful disruptions in the lives of thousands of these employees. The best long term solution to these disruptions will be the increase in new jobs that will come with economic recovery. However, some constructive short-term measures are available in the meantime. The Annex discusses the impact of the drawdown on civilian workers and the programs available to assist them.
