    Screw those who are essential and work??

    Screw those who are essential and work??
    The Trump shut-down.

    If the link provided at the end of this post is correct:
    Those furloughed federal employees considered as not essential and are not currently working for the federal government, can tide themselves over by gainfully working full-time if they can find such opportunities. They can also work part-time and/or qualify for unemployment benefits.

    Those federal employees considered essential and required to continue working without pay, are entitled to work part-time if they can find work that doesn't conflict with their federal work schedule, but they are not entitled to receive unemployment benefits.

    In most if not all cases when federal employees MAY receive back-pay, the state will legally recover any unemployment benefits they paid out for the back-paid period.

    In summary, there's no financial remedy for federal employees that actually do work for our federal government during Trump's shut-down.
    Does this seem logical to anyone except President Donald Trump?

    Many furloughed federal employees can receive unemployment while on temporary leave of absence, but not all. Federal employees who are expected to report to work, even without pay, do not qualify for unemployment benefits. Federal workers should be wary. In most states, as well as D.C., if these workers collect unemployment benefits and then receive retroactive pay, they’ll be required to repay the government.

    We are abusing Federal employees, which is bad for us.

    It is a part of the breakdown of America.

    Things will get much worse.
    My heart breaks for America......The future is going to be so much suck....Because the people mostly never cared enough to get educated.

    What is the theme you care to discuss, OP-er?
    • The accuracy of the content in the linked article?
    • Furloughed federal employees' money-making options during the shutdown?
    • The normative aspects of "essential" employees having to volunteer their service sans certainty of reimbursement?
