    Yeah I’d look for another job real quickly. I’d take almost anything I could get.

    It stands to reason that this mess could happen again.

    You mean at the Dollar Store or Wal-Mart?  Who is going to hire someone dumb enough to depend on the government after Trump?

    Any suitable job, not my interest to determine what choice to make. 
    It would stand to reason the majority of the shutdown’s victims would have been a gov employee before Trump got elected. These were/are, in large part, good paying jobs, with many benefits.

    No... I was smart enough to make sure I have a year's worth of emergency funds.

  • First of all, didn't know you had it in you to ask a question, figured you scared of a brutal tongue-lashing.:P

    Last, but not least, ALL federal workers knew what they signed up for.  It's like working for Save The Whatthefeckever and wanting to sue when the poached don't produce enough blood for your sad stories. This post was edited by Benedict Arnold at January 23, 2019 5:54 PM MST

    You're crossing a line you shouldn't. The are many Coasties who might disagree...tread softly.

    I'm a Navy retiree...just supporting the troops. Imagine a Coastie wife at the food bank. That's what we have here. Sad.

    First of all, I’m a combat vet, Wakko. It will take a lot more than a mere tongue lashing to move me. No tongue here is so imposing. 
    I have posed questions before, and will again as it amuses me to do so. 

    OK, you make a good point, but could we agree this episode could be sufficient to spawn concern about future shutdowns, thereby making these types of federal employment unattractive?

  • It does.  What government agency do you work for?

    After serving nine years in the Army, ‘82-‘91, I would never work for the government. I am a retired businessman, since 2008
