  • 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.

    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.

      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?

                                          Shameful how American workers are not getting paid but the rich get all the tax cuts. Trump is a national emergency.

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.

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.
