BETHESDA, Md. (AP) – Lockheed Martin says it’ll furlough 3,000 employees on Monday due to the government shutdown.

The defense contractor says the number put on furlough will increase weekly if the shutdown continues. United Technologies announced earlier in the week that it’ll furlough 2,000 employees by Monday and more than 5,000 if the shutdown continues into next month.
