Federal Employees are not Getting Paid on Time: U.S. Partial Government Shutdown 2018

Getting paid on time is not less than a blessing, and especially when you’re living in the United
States, but due to a partial government shutdown, it becomes a nightmare for the federal
employees to get their payment on time.

How did the Shutdown happen?

It all started when the current president of the United States, Donald Trump, demanded to fund
for a pet project (Southern border wall), but Congress didn’t show enough support to pass it. On
December 21, 2018, Congress let funding for 25% of the government expire, and by the deadline
of the midnight, Senate and the House hadn’t passed a spending bill, so the government partially
shut down.

Shutdown Effects

Because of Washington brinkmanship, U.S. government has to shut down partially on 22 nd
December 2018, but it immediately affects the federal workers, who don’t have any other option
but to wait until the impasse ends. As per records, 420,000 employees would have to work even
without payment. Moreover, almost 380,000 workers sent home without pay, of course.

Federal Employees Pay

It not only hit hard the Washington D.C’s federal workers but also affected the government
agency employees in Alaska, West Virginia, Wyoming, South Dakota, Mexico, Idaho, and
Montana.

As per reports, half of the affected employees don’t even have college degrees. On the other side,
one in five workers have education beyond a bachelor’s degree, and almost 45% of them were
working as administrative positions like air traffic controllers, IT managers, criminal
investigators, and inspectors. Others include blue-collar employees, including custodians,
mechanics, and cooks.

How can the issue resolve?

Well, the three possibilities that can end the shutdown are:

  • If Trump surrenders and agreeing to remove shutdown without getting funds for the
    border wall.
  •  If Democrats give up and agree to a few or all demands of the president.
  •  If Republicans surrender, and join Democrats to pass the spending bill with a veto-proof
    majority for funding the government. In this way, they don’t need Trump’s approval.

These are only assumptions, and nobody knows what will happen next. But one thing is
understandable the federal employees’ lives are at stake even though they are not responsible for
all this fuss.

simplifying the tiresome and cumbersome tax regime.

business to this level of success. He left his job at the age of 29 to concentrate on trading
and creating customer base through the internet when people had not much idea about
online businesses.
With great products and the best customer care service, his business flew like fire. He
