Jimmy Kimmel Puts Federal Employees to Work During Government Shutdown – Air Traffic Controller

  • Published: 11 January 2019
  • Today is Day 20 of the government shutdown. Nearly 800,000 federal employees are working without pay. So we are putting a federal employee to work every night until the shutdown ends. Tonight, Jimmy hires air traffic controller Nathan Steinhubel to help out in our greenroom.

    Gosh, it's a good thing they are still working since Melania wants to fly to Florida.

      Air traffic controllers work maybe 3 days a week, and get paid a lot of $, for their high stress job. They make 3 figures. He isn’t hurting.

        Respectfully, everyone is dumber for having read your comment! I assure you there is no air traffic controller that works 3 days/week, most of us are working 6 days/week because staffing is so bad. You’re correct we do make good money as we should because keeping airplanes safe is an important job. 3 figures?!!! I hope you realize that “3 figures” means less than a thousand dollars/year(you’re trying to say six figures as in $100,000)! I suggest you do your due diligence/research on topics before you post incorrect information.

      I don't get why air traffic controllers and tsa agents are part government employees instead of airport employees.

                          Im against the shut down. My question is. It is illegal to not pay employees. So. Why arn't these federal employees applying for unemployment benefits?

Unless they’re being paid more than a quarter of a million a year, I’m thrilled that they’re making what they make. I’ve been in a boat that could have capsized easily (but somehow didn’t), I was in a car accident last month, but I’ve never even been made nervous when taking off from or arriving at an airport.

You're right though, Rino "Republicans" and Trump dragging his feet first time aee to blame. Now it's Nancy Pelosi.

                                                                                  • Prince Mwamba

You all knew very well a wall was never gonna be supported by the dems. Gop should just take the loss and move on and re-vote for the funding bill that they already passed.

                                                                                  • Eileen D
