There have been a lot of stories lately about federal employees affected by the partial shutdown having a hard time making ends meet during the partial government shutdown.
For example, some federal employees have started Go Fund Me drives to help make ends meet. So you might be surprised to learn that they haven't missed a paycheck. Yet.
The first paycheck the workers would miss is January 15th. The last time they got paid was New Year's Eve.
As the partial shutdown drags on, it's interesting to also note that this is not the longest shutdown in history. At least not yet. It's now the third longest in history.
