If I was a federal employee, I would have minimal 4 months of bills in reserves. Period. It's call PLANNING.
Seeing how this happened 19 prior times since 1976, stands to reason yes?
Then, once I get my back pay, replace the depleted funds.
Don't expect me to get all upset for people that fail to plan for obvious potential issues.
Only excuse is a newer hire that didn't have the opportunity just yet to tuck away the funds.
Save the "but the contractors". These federal contracts are some freaking windfalls. VERY GENEROUS. Why do you think so many dream of landing a governments contact? They pay $500 for hammers!
They'll be just fine.

If I'm fine... They're better than fine. Trust me. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
⚠️While and since my business went under... Life has been a struggle. That happens on occasion.
I'm blown away by the propaganda. These people have jobs and will be paid. Period.

Not everyone enjoys that. My business went under and all I got was tax leins.
Make payroll or send in the sales tax... These where the choices I faced. Foolishly I didn't lay off workers like I should have... That was a decision I made, now I'm living with it.
I was concerned for them, they needed their pay.
However, that decision ended up burying the company and everyone lost their job for good... No back pay coming for them or me.

I only mention this because of the ridiculous bleeding heart crap. Sorry if it sounds cold. It's TRUE.
TRUTH IS COLD SOMETIMES.
I'll put it like this...

People with no feet are being told to feel bad for those with no shoes...

And FYI, yes I'm struggling... I'll be fine. Don't worry about me either... And my personal plight is greater then the federal workers waiting extra long for the checks they will be getting. #justSaying
