Sign This Petition to STOP Government Shutdowns Forever!
by Stop Government Shutdowns Forever | 1.28.19
Please sign this petition to tell our elected Representatives that we want to STOP Government Shutdowns Forever.
The Trump Administration's Government Shutdown that lasted 35 days damaged our nation as a whole by costing us $1.2 Billion dollars per week and halting all civil government operations. The Government Shutdown reduced our economic growth. The furloughed 145,000 federal workers and 112,500 federal contractors in the Washington Metropolitan Area alone cost the regional economy $119 million dollars each day.
This affected 4 MILLION federal contractors and 800,000 federal employees and their families nationwide, who did not receive their paychecks for 35 days.
The fiscal impact to our economy is SEVERE and should NOT be allowed. The 4 MILLION federal contractors and 800,000 federal government employees seriously impacted by the Government Shutdown accounts for nearly 3% of the labor force in the United States.
The Government is the LARGEST Employer in the United States and should NOT be allowed to take MILLIONS of Americans hostage and treat them as political pawns. NEVER AGAIN.
Sign the petition to STOP Government Shutdowns Forever.
The 4 MILLION Americans who are federal contractors are NOT included in the Government Employee Fair Treatment Act of 2019 that secured backpay for the 800,000 federal employees. How UNFAIR! 4 MILLION Americans will not receive any pay for that 35 day period of time. Many of those contractors quit to find work elsewhere for immediate pay. All of depleted savings and dug ourselves deeper into debt with credit cards and loans with interest. How UNFAIR!
Please sign the petition to STOP Government Shutdowns Forever.
The FDA was closed, which put our food and consumer goods at risk. HUD was closed so all FHA loans and contracts with large and small business development were all halted. Passports were not processed. Immigration applications were not processed. The IRS was closed. The EPA was closed and was not inspecting for health and safety. The list goes on!
We, the People, must demand that our Constitutional rights and Democracy be upheld by our elected Representatives. America is a nation with a "government of the people, by the people, for the people," as was stated by Abraham Lincoln. Shutting down the government, shutting out 4 MILLION federal contractors and 800,000 federal employees out of their jobs, failing to pay all of these employees, while making it a fireable offense to find another job or even ask for donations is OUTRAGEOUS and should never happen again! Please sign this petition to demand a STOP to Government Shutdowns Forever.
President Trump has threatened another Government Shutdown to begin on February 15th. PLEASE help me stop this from happening!
