Good for those federal employees (our fellow Americans) who have had the courage to challenge the beast (Trump and his administration)!  I say they should sue until "Master"  lets go of the purse and does the right thing and not only pays those folks who, in essence, are working for us, but reopens the government as a whole. It is ridiculous that one incompetent person (and I do mean both mentally and proficiently)  has the power to make these kinds of monumental decisions which could potentially alter and destroy the lives of so many innocent American citizens.  Trump is not fit to be President of The United States of America!

I suggest that for every day these people are used as pawns, Nancy deduct the amount owed them from what she'll give Trump.


I suggest Dems give lil donny NOTHING for his wall because that is it's actual value in Border Security.

 

Lets see if lil donny will demand ransome for the 800,000 lives he's fouled up, or end his infantile TanTrump and sign the annual appropriations for the 6 other agencies, and leave Homeland Security for "negotiations".

 

Republicans have wanted to privatize TSA ever since it was created - wonder how all those TSA folks would feel if they were contract workers would would receive NOTHING in back pay, just like all the other contract workers lil donny has kicked out of the line at the pay window?

So  what if a lot of this is blue? Mine is a dodge and so is yours. The problem is this is happening for no good reason except our Dictator Trump thinks he will gain by doing it. It is the job of the American people to make sure he looses for doing this.

Can you prove this is exaggerated?

 

Of course not.

 

This lawsuit represents thousands upon thousands of FEDERAL EMPLOYEES.

 

Interesting how you are repeatedly trying to minimize their plight.

 

Have you ever gone completely without income but were made to work anyway by an employer???

Is this the new GOPerLord bar for accepting information - you have to collect it YOURSELF?

 

There's a great many peer-review studies showing in 2017 the average American has a savings rate of less than 2.4%, and that includes savings for their kid's college AND their own retirement.

 

This is down from 10.4% in 1960 when the tax code resulted in the vast majority (96%) of profits from increased worker productivity went to the worker in the form of higher pay.

 

Perhaps this TanTrump will cause the 800,000 workers and their families to realize something must change or they will never be able to retire, and working harder and reducing their life-style is not the only solution.

I am very plsd with their attempt to require the Feds to treat their so-called paid staff (who are being ill-used by a commander having no regard for workers). How dare OPM suggest unpaid employees beg their landlords, grocery stores, utility companies, gas stations, children's schools, childcare providers, etc. for a barter system so they can work without pay 40 hrs. or more while Donald luxuriates in the White House, built by slaves. After not getting paid, they can then work for the landlord and spend less time with their families, leave their children unattended, etc. to make up for Trump hatred of the work force. So what if they get the $ weeks or months later. Their interest on loans, credit cards, late charges, will pile up. So what if they are forced to sit at home without a pay check while the liar in chief takes full advantage of his 'office' to undermine regular employees as well as contract workers whom he does not have to pay when he 'strikes'.
