Furloughs Being Blamed For Hill Air Force Base Traffic Jams

Posted August 12th, 2013 @ 12:04pm by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

Hill Air Force Base furloughs have left some employees reporting long waits, as they try to get on base.

Federal spending cuts prompted the unpaid furlough days, which began last month.

Employees say, it's now common to sit a half hour, waiting to get through understaffed security gates.

But Hill officials say lengthy delays remain uncommon...and the average wait is about six minutes.
