Those federal employees, whether staying home or working without pay, still have bills to pay. Their landlords, lenders, utilities, and so on don't want to wait until after the shutdown to get paid. Employees are having to borrow money just to make ends meet. Local food banks, already straining to meet the need, are now seeing unpaid federal workers in their help lines.
Don't drive intexticated.
