(KCEN) -- Where do Fort Hood's civilian workers stand as the military faces huge cuts?
That was the hot topic at a town hall meeting on base yesterday.
The Army already plans to cut its civilian workforce by 30 percent over the next decade.
As part of that plan, 120 workers have to go by September.
Civilian workers were also warned of the possibility of mandatory 22-day unpaid leaves.
That's as current budget shortfalls have Fort Hood operating with 50 million dollars less this year.
Those are the things that currently can be expected.
But if Congress can't agree on a budget by March 1, automatic spending cuts could cripple Fort Hood to the tune of 100 million dollars.
If Fort Hood is forced to go into survival mode, it will keep what's called Mission-Critical Jobs.
Those are the ones that are necessary for the health and safety of our troops.
