The Shutdown.

Trump’s government shutdown has dragged on for over 3 weeks. And as of this morning, it’s the longest shutdown in US history. About 800K federal employees have gone a full pay cycle without a paycheck, and half of them are still working—again, WITHOUT PAY. Even worse, contract workers for the federal government (think office cleaners, food servers) won’t even be entitled to backpay when the govt reopens. This week, we’re diving into the shutdown—why it’s happening, why it matters, and what you can do.
