Monday started the first full day of the $85 billion federal budget reductions that come from sequestration. The cuts could cut 750,000 jobs by the end of the year, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.
Although it would possibly be shorter to create a list of who sequestration will not affect, here are seven specific groups to expect change, according to an article by National Journal.
About 800,000 employees who work for the pentagon potentially face unpaid leave after sequestration takes effect.
If nothing is done, large delays on airlines could start April 1 due to the Federal Aviation Administration facing $600 million in cuts. The cuts could create thousands of temporary layoffs, according to the Transportation Secretary.
There may be 600,000 dropped from this government program when sequestration takes effect.
Along with this, the Head Start program could cut access to 70,000 children, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
Veterans or active service member dependents may have insurance benefits affected as their Tricare program faces a $3 billion shortage.
Thousands of teachers or aides nationwide could face layoffs. The Department of Education is required to cut $1.9 billion, according to The Washington Post.
States provide the bulk of school aid in money, but the cuts will create some affect.
For national parks like Yosemite, spending cuts could create less trash collection. This could in turn attract more bears in campgrounds.
Other parks like the Great Smoky Mountains will close five campgrounds, though each park will vary in changes.
In general, sequestration may slow down economic growth. This has a far-range impact on things like how much consumers spend to how many people businesses hire.
