All Federal Employees are required to work, as well as asked for Furloughed in case of Government Shut Downs or when there is less work so why should they be penalized being a public servant is not an easy job not only do they get only minimum wages whereas higher ups are making significantly more money then them who are less qualified but bottom line is all Federal and Government employees should be paid regardless they worked or not as many of them cannot work during Gov't Shut down not because they do not want to work but because this situations forces them not to work and get a paycheck. If that's the case then all the Congress and President and WH employees should not get any pay either. Lets all be civil just like us everybody has responsibilities in their lives just because it is not affecting us currently doesn't mean it's not everybody's problem. If one American Citizen is affected we should all be concerned and this lack of empathy has divided the country. When I heard a Federal employee who was Trump supporter say that the only reason he doesn't support gov't shut down because it is effecting his family otherwise he would support shut down how could this be why do we forget that at the end of the day all our ancestors are immigrants and we are the descendants. We are all Americans not just by birth right but by constitutional rights as well. I am sadly disappointed by such animosity towards immigrant and migrant families that now we have resorted to watch them die at borders and under ICE care. It is extremely offensive and sad. I Hope America changes it's hatred towards the minorities.
