The over 800,000 thousand federal employees affected by this Government Shutdown are all American citizens, but most importantly they are human beings. These workers are already struggling to recover from being furloughed earlier in the year. Many of the park rangers, tour guides, oceanographers, and rocket scientist, etc. that work for our nation are already vastly under paid, and like other average American citizens cannot afford the loss of their hard earned wages without warning or warrant. Human beings should never be used as pawns in a political game, especially one that never should have been played in the first place. I ask you to stand in solidarity with the American worker and make The House of Representatives defer all congressional paychecks until all furloughed federal employees have been adequately compensated. The only group of people who should have to pay for the House of Representatives inability to communicate is the Congressional Representatives who are currently holding our nation hostage.
