Response to MineralMan (Original post)

15. I am retired federal employee who has been through several furloughs and

it is just not that simple. For one thing, federal employees still have their health insurance while they are on furlough, will have it for a while and can't just leave their families high and dry without the health insurance they have and need.

If they live in an area that is full of federal employees, like the area I live in, they are really up shit creek because the Trump shutdown screws over so many people in a rippling affect.

Saying oh, they should just quit and get another job is right up there with telling them to have a garage sale IMO. Do you think they haven't thought of that? But many of them are stuck due to circumstances beyond their control and will be screwed no matter what they do and may be jumping out of the frying pan into the fire.
