    Oh, and don't forget the deflection that they're protesting because they're all Democrats who work for the government.

    Trump promises to pay federal workers after shutdown

    https://thehill.com/homenews/adminis...after-shutdown

    President Trump has promised Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) that he will sign a bill providing backpay to federal workers once the government shutdown, which has stretched 20 days, finally ends.

    The Senate passed by unanimous consent legislation Thursday evening providing that federal workers — essential and furloughed employees — will be paid once the shutdown is over.


    Federal employees are due to miss paychecks Friday, which has caused consternation in the Washington, DC, region.

    Trump made his pledge in a phone call with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) as part of an effort to work out a deal to adjourn the Senate this week.

    Kaine, who represents thousands of federal workers in Northern Virginia, threatened to block the adjournment resolution unless GOP leaders provided some assurance that they would be taken care of for time and paychecks missed because of the shutdown.
    That's good news.
    Me not responding means it's a waste of my time and/or I don't play stupid games. I read it, eye-rolled, and moved on.

    If they didn’t have a permit to do it, I hope he fires all who partook of the protest.

    It's funny that the biggest crisis of this shutdown is the paychecks... apparently the biggest impact on the country due to this shutdown is less traffic at rush hour.

    these people have no empathy, that's why they are Trump supporters and republicans

They won't foreclose on your home or repossess your car until you get way behind, but they will still report your late payment to the credit agencies and you could easily see your score drop by way over a hundred points. That is the kind of stuff that doesn't get talked about or reported. Sure, few workers lose their home or see their cars repossessed because of this, but a lot of them sure see their credit ruined for years because of it.
    You have to be at a minimum 30 days late for it to show up on a credit report.

    One day will do nothing, but I am sure the left will cry about it some more.
