About 400,000 civilian employees aren't working right now.

Rallies are being held on Thursday and Friday, by federal workers and supporters to protest the government shutdown. The first payday approaches with no paycheck and thousands of federal workers are filing for unemployment. Hundreds marched near the white house with signs saying, “Trump: End the shutdown”, “Congress: Do your job, so we can do ours”, and “Let me do my job”. According to USA Today, almost half of the 800,000 civilian federal employees are not working and those who are will not be able to receive their paycheck until the stalemate is settled.

“I had an opportunity to talk to President Trump a few moments ago and wanted to indicate to our colleagues that he will sign the bill that we’ve been discussing here to guarantee that government workers who’ve been displaced as a result of the shutdown will ultimately be compensated,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced on the Senate floor.
