The sequester cuts are officially in place but the sky hasn’t fallen. It is unlikely that you would even noticed the cuts yet, because while the sequester went into effect last week the impact won’t really begin to be felt until next month.

The big aspects of the sequester don’t really start until April 1st at the earliest. Most agencies won’t be start furloughing their employees until then beginning of next month. Agencies are normally required to give 30 days notices before furloughing workers and those notices should be going out around now.
