      …unions representing employees of the federal government will rally at noon today in Washington, D.C., to demand an end to the partial shutdown, which has left 380,000 workers furloughed—which means they will never be paid—and another 420,000 forced to work without a paycheck.

      Anyone else in favor of paying these poor people with money confiscated directly from Trump ?

      Let’s see what the Bigly Businessman would do if his employees really defied his sorry ass.

      WASHINGTON — Three weeks into the partial government shutdown, hundreds of thousands of people are still being asked to work for the government without pay, but they are legally prohibited from striking in protest.

      Like 53,000 other TSA workers, Shekina Givens has been doing her job for the past three weeks without pay. She says she and her co-workers are “starting to get more nervous” and increasingly frustrated that they can’t strike as the shutdown drags on.

      “It just makes you feel like you don’t have any leverage,” said Givens, who works at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and is American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) union representative. “They’re able to do whatever they want to do to us but there’s no way for us to fight, there’s no way for us to make a statement where it really counts,” she said.

      because you don’t have any leverage.  your unions have been defanged, your government has been taken over (not just by the trumpettes but long ago actually) and a lot of you went along with it.
