YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) -- About 400 furloughed employees at a northeast Ohio air base are returning to work under orders from the Pentagon as the federal government's partial shutdown enters its second week.
The Vindicator reports furloughed employees at the Youngstown Air Reserve Station in Vienna were expected to return Monday. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered nearly 350,000 people back on the job, basing his decision on a Pentagon interpretation of a law called the Pay Our Military Act.
In western Ohio, thousands of civilian employees at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton are awaiting word on which of them will be recalled. About 8,700 had been sent home on furlough because of the shutdown.
A base spokesman tells the Dayton Daily News officials are working to identify which employees will return.
