Even as most sectors report continued job growth and hiring, federal employees say their organizations are shrinking, according to a Gallup survey released Wednesday.

About 42 percent of federal workers who responded to the survey in July reported that their employer was reducing staff, up from 37 percent in June.

Some feds said there was hiring occurring at their agencies (25 percent), but that figure was down from 32 percent in June, according to the survey.

“It is possible that the pace of furloughs and layoffs increased in July as federal agencies moved to implement the staffing component of budget cuts,” Gallup said in a press release.
