300,000+ more Americans have jobs and paychecks G O O D. 800,000 federal employees no long have paychecks B A D. In this case the bad outnumbers the good by the 800,00 (feds) who no longer have paychecks and money to spend. Trump proudly says "I will keep it shout down for a long, long time until I get the wall money'. Democrats say NO wall money. The stalemate can last far longer than anyone now expects. I for one have to wonder, ____ how much longer will federal employees show up for work each day while they are not getting pay checks?? 85% of federal employees are college grads and with employment skills which are in high demand and can easily find other jobs.
