Federal Workers Are Mad As Hell

Furloughed federal workers, hundreds of thousands of whom have been working for weeks without pay, are tired of waiting for lawmakers to find a solution to the partial government shutdown. So they’re taking to the streets, and the courts.

On Thursday, the same day they received pay stubs for zero dollars, air traffic controllers staged a protest outside the Capitol. They were joined by unions representing other groups of federal workers, including TSA workers and pilots. They were also joined by several lawmakers, including Democratic senators Mark Warner and Richard Blumenthal.

The way to end the shutdown is to start shutting everything else down. Can you imagine if this happened in France? They'd be at the barricades. Some of them are anyway.

They should be mad as hell. This whole shutdown is the result of a temper tantrum by Trump and it's not Trump who is paying the price of the shutdown but the workers.
