Commissary Budget Takes a Hit:

The commissary budget will take a 21 percent cut in fiscal 2020, if the Defense Department’s budget request is approved by Congress. Defense officials are asking for $995 million in taxpayer funding to operate the 236 commissary stores worldwide, down from $1.27 billion in fiscal 2019, according to DOD budget documents. Part of the reduction is likely due to an 11 percent decrease in the commissary work force. Those work force cuts in the Defense Commissary Agency started in fiscal 2019 and will carry forward into fiscal 2020 — going from 14,000 employees worldwide to 12,500 during fiscal 2020. Information was not immediately available about how those work force cuts affect the stores and customers.
