Right now, nearly 30,000 federal workers in Florida are being denied work because of the government shutdown. That’s tens of thousands of our friends, neighbors and family members who are making sacrifices to cover their basic needs.
As the shutdown drags on, workers all across the state are suffering the impacts. Reports show that Florida workers are diving into their savings, renting out their homes, and driving up their credit card debts to pay their bills.
Playing politics with the livelihoods of working people needs to end. Putting people back to work should be the US Senate’s top priority. Politicians need to do their job and allow us to do ours.
