The headline of this article over at clearancejobs.com sums it up nicely:

The Federal Hiring Freeze is Over But Cutting the Workforce Begins

The federal hiring freeze is over, but now comes the part that might hurt a little, as agencies look to cut the size and scope of their workforce.

I agree...

I'd also point out that the "freeze" is not over for all agencies... some have decided to not hire until they reorganize (like State dept).

Also, I spoke with a friend in management from another agency and he said they are taking advantage of the freeze, cuts, etc to honestly look at their structure and cut some people. He used the term "regroup of departments". He was not a trump supporter, but he welcomes this change (or rather look at this change as a chance to do something positive for the organization).

Hopefully people are vising opm and learning their rights.
