How is this even a question. My husband is an air traffic controller. When you’re flying do you want to be safe? Do you feel like any American should work without getting pay? He is REQUIRED to work during this shutdown and you better damn well think he deserves to get paid for his time plus! How is it fair that there are people sitting at home that will lost likely get paid while doing so when the government is shut down while he’s still at work busting his ass to make sure people are still safe while flying, including the very people holding his pay hostage? Him and all other federal employees required to work during this shutdown should be paid at overtime rate for all hours worked. That may help make up for the added stress (mind you to one of the most stressful jobs there is) interest lost for having to pull money from savings, interest racked up on credit cards, late fees etc.
If you have voted no on this then I hope you can go to work for weeks and not get paid. How can you even think of voting No on this? They can’t collect unemployment, they are STILL working 40+ hours a week.
This whole shutdown is a joke because of the toddler in the whitehouse.
