Federal employees typically need permission from their supervisors to take on other jobs.

Since the supervisors are on furlough, they cannot approve their staff taking on outside work.

Consequently, federal employees who get outside jobs to pay the rent or mortgage or pass the time could be subject to rebuke when they return to work.

This probably won't happen, but it could, especially if they take a job that remotely utilizes the skills they employ as a government employee.
