In the time I've been at the airlines I've seen hiring slow down multiple times. I've seen hiring fully stop twice. I've seen class dates canceled and the new hires put into a pool. In that time period they never furloughed a pilot, eventually called everyone in the pool and they've been hiring full steam for about a year now.

There's no basis for you making stuff up. Furloughs are predictable when a company loses a major contract, declares bankrupcy or the economy tanks. ASA has done none of those things. Hiring slow downs happen for a variety of reasons.
