GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN 2019: FURLOUGHED WORKERS RELIEVED AGREEMENT REACHED, READY TO GET PAID AGAIN
CHICAGO – President Trump signed a bill Friday to end the longest government shutdown in American history without money for a wall along the southern border. That’s a relief to thousands of federal workers in the Chicago area who haven’t been paid in the past month.
Trump began his remarks by praising the federal workers who missed their second paycheck Friday. Many are now calling for a funding solution beyond February.
“We are a little concerned that it’s such a short term budget,” Muchowski said. “Federal workers don’t want this kind of uncertainty.”
