“In the United States, a furlough is a temporary unpaid leave of some employees due to special needs of a company”
Hmm. Didn’t know that. Interesting, learn something new every day. Now, how does one pronounce it?(pron.: /ˈfɜrloʊ/; from Dutch: “verlof”) I knew “verlof”, same as in Afrikaans, so is fɜrloʊ similar?…crap, I don’t know how to read fɜrloʊ.“fur – low”? How does verlof “(fur-law-f”) end up as “fur-low”?Tch. Anyway, don’t mind me, I have no opinion on this sequester business you’re all on about. Actually, from what I’ve been reading on this forum, most of you seem a tad confused by it all, too. Tch, tch.
