Sarah Rose, 27, works full time as a newspaper reporter in Kentucky, but is considering taking a part-time job to help cover living expenses.

Rose earns $24,000 a year at the Glasgow Daily News, where mandatory furloughs this year are projected to reduce her modest salary by $2,000.

“With these furlough days, I am living paycheck to paycheck,” says Rose, who holds a bachelor’s degree in mass communication from Mesa State College in Colorado.
