Our estimate of approximately one million lost jobs due to sequester remains our base case if a full sequester occurs as scheduled on March 1.

I still don't get it. Sequester isn't really a cut but rather not allowing future growth. So what jobs are going to be "lost" now ?

The cuts are happening now. I'm losing 3 critical members on the software team. We are not fully cross trained to cover the staff that are leaving and even so, we will be woefully understaffed. I routinely work 55 to 60 hours for 40 hours pay to keep a very aggressive schedule up to date. The people that are going will go to other jobs. Even if the customer manages to get funds back, we will have to go through a year getting the new hires cleared, then additional time to train and spin up on the tasking.
