No paydays for any Fayette feds
With regard to the subject story published in your paper on 10/11/13, you list only two people in Fayette County who have been impacted by the ongoing government shutdown: one TSA employee and an ROTC student being denied his physical.
The fact is that ALL government employees in Fayette County (FAA included) are being affected.
Even those who are excepted/essential and working will NOT be receiving paychecks until the government reopens.
Our next payday at FAA is Tuesday, Oct. 15. I seriously doubt we will be seeing anything in our bank accounts that day unless something happens in Washington ASAP, especially since Monday is a federal holiday.
Just wanted to make sure that you fully understood the reality of this shutdown nonsense, and that it is not something to be trivialized.
