    Good for you, ladies. Democrats don't care about shut-down. They're vacationing with lobbyist not out-of-work employees.

    Lmao well you look at that. They got off their ass and made something happen. Lmao Gov't workers should act accordingly. Lmao. I know I got off my lazy ass from my Gov't job and got back on the road. And making America great again. Idk about you but I'm not a freeloader and my nephew who is autistic. That I take care of. Has not been affected. Because I rather be known as busting my ass off and providing for my family. Rather than sitting at home waiting for a welfare check. So shut up America and get off your lazy ass and do something about it..

    If this shutdown continues much longer there'll be more sellers than buyers. People shouldn't be reduced to do this when you're qualified + legally employed.💔

    Oh God forbid that government workers get " creative ". What would happen to us if mindless robots stopped living of the affirmative action dime and actually started producing something useful to society. Let the siege continue!

    With any luck you won't have to go back. Good luck ladies. Fuck the jobs where the employer doesn't care about you like your boss clearly doesn't. I mean of course Mr "the donald".

    If you work for the federal government. And you do not have a back-up plan. That's your fault. I'm a TSA agent and Nashville. I've got plenty of money saved up. Build the fuking wall.

    This is awesome and goes to show jobs are not "safe" but business is so "risky" LOL.Glad they aren't bitching about money and "the money their entitled to". You put all your eggs in one basket and that shit just dropped and busted. I hope this serves as a wake up call to people who need to start working on savings and side income/investments.It astounds me how few people have even a week of savings.
