USA Today shared a great deal of social media angst from federal employees who are currently feeling the heat as the partial government shutdown continues to progress.
While the Democrats continue to fight Trump’s request for a $5 billion wall to protect American borders, over 800,000 federal workers that assist with keeping our nation afloat are beginning to fear that they will not have the funds they need to survive if the shutdown lasts much longer.
“I may have to terminated my husband’s caregiver because it’s so expensive, it’ll rip through any savings we have very quickly,” stated one woman who commented under #ShutdownStories. Another federal employee shared his story of being a disabled veteran who can’t get his needed surgery due to the government shutdown. Hundreds of people shared their fears on Twitter in an effort to find solace among one another.
