Pentagon Ramps Up Civilian Hiring; Other Agencies Get Cut
from Breaking Defense
Despite direction from the White House for federal agencies to trim their payrolls, the Pentagon is going in the opposite direction — hiring more civilian employees to support burgeoning investments in cyber, intelligence, engineering, shipbuilding and logistics. The move, which is meant to cut down on the number of contractors working for the feds, is in keeping with Defense Secretary James Mattis' push to modernize the military to stay out in front of rapidly modernizing powers like China and Russia.
