Speaking from Washington to political activists in Denver, a political analyst for the Communications Workers of America says "The government shutdown) is going to go on for a while."
While the government shutdown is in effect, the CWA analyst remarks: "There are federal government employees who will be without jobs, without pay, and without protection for the indefinite future."
The shutdown means there's a possibility that government employees without income could start to impact social services, such as local food banks. Anyone who knows a government employee ought to thank the employee for dedicated public service and express understanding that this situation is not the fault of the everyday government workers.
