US federal workers and their families have taken to social media to voice their frustration on the ongoing government shutdown that has dragged on for five days so far.
The individuals, who are expressing their problems and concerns through Hashtag-ShutdownStories, are mainly angry over the timing of the shutdown which is taking place during Christmas holidays.
Nearly one-quarter of the US federal government agencies has been shut down since December 22.
There are some worried about their due mortgage payments and not being able to pay their rents or feed their families.
I am a single mother of 3 with no help. Not knowing if I can pay rent or feed my family next week is hard and all that’s on my mind this day of Christmas when I should be happy. My kids feel my anxiety too 😔 #ShutdownStories
