There may be some areas of the country where there are a lot of sad faces, and the local economy is taking a hit.

It is too true..... TSA ,AIr Traffic Controllers, FBI and others are working but are not being paid.
Whats the point of denying this?


I'm not going to explain it again. See page #1, if you have suddenly turned over a new leaf and are open to seeing things in a new light.

Getting back pay isnt the same as getting a pay check on time.


That is an accurate, common-sense statement.

But what isn't common sense is trump supporters making light of the American working mans hardships during the shut down.

They Will All Receive " Back Pay " when the Government Eventually Reopens . Hopefully some of them in the mean time will find work in the Private Sector considering the President has Created Many Opportunities there .

If the government can bailout the banks then why can’t the banks just agree that they will get their. Money when these people finally get paid?
I know it won’t happen but maybe it should since it was tax money that saved their asses.
They don’t really want a bunch of homes that they have to pay taxes on and handle the upkeep on the property, they know that the money will come so they should just wait.

Or maybe they will let some illegal immigrants move into the homes. And expect the government (taxpayers)bail them out yet again.

What? How many private sector air traffic controller jobs are out there? They are highly specialized and highly trained people.

Every year there is a chance of a government shutdown. The Federal employees should be prepared with at least enough savings to pay two months worth of bills come that time of year. They should not overspend on Christmas presents when they know that there may be a shortage after Christmas. But I guess many government workers are not that smart it seems.

If you accept a job on the condition of getting a paycheck every 2 weeks and your employer doesn't meet that obligation, you are free to leave and find another job aren't you?

I would guess that when you file taxes at the end of the year, your income would reflect that yes, you did get paid your salary for that year. You may not have gotten it a scheduled but you damn sure got paid.

They can just pass the buck on to the banks, bill collectors, and so on that they also will get paid. The collectors should also have enough in savings to weather the storm.

We should run the whole country this way to see how it works out.

Missing rent and mortgage payments can be problematic. As can running up credit card debt.



Well then write your democrat congress person and tell them to get to the table and make a deal.

You are assuming that people can't pay their utilities after one month?
That's the point I am making.

I was taught a long time ago to save 6 months worth of bills in an emergency fund for times just like this. It seems like common sense today, and most double-income families have 4x the money coming in that I do.

So are you telling me all these people are that broke after missing a paycheck or two?

That is truly shocking to me and only proves that people today are living too far beyond their means.




No, the problem is the moneychangers sold the nation out to China and now want to blame the stagnant wages on the workers. As usual, they deflect.

80% live paycheck to paycheck because of the insane costs for housing, medical and food.
A 1500 dollar mortgage payment every month vs a one time 50 dollar gadget are not even in the same ball park.

every year there's a gov't shutdown, the gov't knows when the money is due to run out. the gov't should be prepared for that date AND HAVE MONEY APPROPRIATED TO PREVENT THE SHUTDOWN!!!

and, I am really getting rather tired with people sitting there blaming people for "overspending"... like you just know that all these people just overspent over the holiday season. like you all know that they all have the best cellphones and all the luxuries of life that they overspent on. it's a copout yous try far too many times...
anyone complaining they can't afford to live on a near minimum wage have the best cell phones in the world, cable tv along with hbo and cinimax, and they are treating themselves to steak every other day!!
why don't you come out and say, we don't care enough to look at a problem and actually work on a solution based on the facts?

If this is seriously not big deal and ok for employers to do, then OP needs to put his money where his mouth is -- literally-- and lead us peons by example to show us how a society can manage with that kind of wishy-washy payment thinking.

"Sorry grocery store owner, I can't pay you right NOW, but I will. Eventually. At some point."

"Sorry electric company, it's coming, it's just delayed! Dunno when to ballpark that estimated payment date, though."

"Hey, auto insurer? Not getting it on time, sorry. Take a shot in the dark at when, though, 'kay?"

Your post is a slap in the face to everyone facing problems because of this shutdown.

I know a TSA worker that is at the point that he can't go into work because he is running out of money for transportation.

I wonder how good the Government is about NOT paying those TSA workers for the days they've called in sick during the shutdown. I would bet many of them still receive a full paycheck (once the partial government shutdown is over) as if they worked every day. This is just based on the Fed's track record with handling money, I could be totally wrong.
