Chuck Hagel To Return Portion Of Salary To Pentagon

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has decided to return a portion of his salary back to the Pentagon in an effort to show solidarity for those department employees facing 14-day furloughs as a consequence of automatic budget cuts known as sequestration, Politico reported Tuesday. 

“The secretary plans to subject his pay to furlough levels even though he is not required to because he is a presidentially appointed, Senate-confirmed official in this department,” a spokesman explained.
