U.S. Government Shutdown Hits Record Length With No End Seen


U.S. Government Shutdown Hits Record Length With No End SeenThe White House scuttled efforts to reach a deal on Capitol Hill on Thursday, and Trump’s budget team is drawing up contingency plans for a shutdown that extends through the end of February, according to an administration official. About 800,000 federal workers missed their pay for the first time Friday -- at least some receiving pay stubs for $0.00 -- as unions sued the government for requiring their members to work without pay. Trump said Friday that he planned to sign a bill guaranteeing that federal employees will be given back pay once the government reopens.
