It's day 2 of the government shutdown; but what does that actually mean?
- "Essential" government services will still run even if employees aren't getting paid – USPS, TSA, Social Security
- Other "non-essential" government employees will be "furloughed" and told to stay at home.
- Military will be required to work, but won't be paid until Congress comes to an agreement
- Employees will be paid retroactively once an agreement is met.
Efficiency at its finest … or a force function to get the children to play nicer with each other?
