Agreement Reached To End Federal Shutdown

Get A Loan' Trump's Commerce Chief Tells Unpaid Federal Workers Donald Trump Is Being Mocked For Not Knowing How Grocery Stores Work

About 30 percent of the 26,000 recalled workers have sought permission under their union contract to be absent from work, IRS officials told House committee staff in a briefing Thursday.

As President Donald Trump reached a deal to reopen the government, some furloughed workers across the United States are relieved while others are not feeling quite optimistic yet.

The federal employee in Ogden, Utah, was surprised to hear about the deal on Friday.

"All I can say is, praise the Lord", Sims said.

Arrisia Sims, an agricultural specialist for Customs and Border Protection, said she was very grateful for the decision. "They have said they are for complete border security, and they have finally and fully acknowledged that having barriers, fencing, or walls - or whatever you want to call it - will be an important part of the solution".

"While small businesses may benefit from an agreement that will temporarily reopen the entire federal government, it's an inescapable fact that the partial government shutdown inflicted substantial damage on America's small firms", said founder and CEO John Arensmeyer.

"Today's announcement is a welcome, albeit temporary, end to this unnecessary, unconscionable Trump shutdown", said U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), in a response to Trump's announcement.

On Friday night, a lot of them expressed relief.

The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley on Hudson Street in Cornwall is opening its doors today to help furloughed or federal employees still reporting to work, but going unpaid.

Many government employees have been relying on assistance from the community - dining at places like Jose Andres' pop-up restaurant that offered free meals for furloughed workers. The food bank's director says they've gotten special donations from farms and grocery stores, all in an effort to help out. "They shouldn't have to wait a minute longer".

"Insofar as the lawsuit is concerned, however, they intend to proceed and seek to get a final ruling on the merits so that, perhaps, they will never be in this position again", Mr. Kator said. "But somehow I think cooler heads will prevail", Kaplan said.
