The government shutdown spotlights a bigger issue: 78% of US workers live paycheck to paycheck
The shutdown has left approximately 800,000 federal workers in financial limbo. Around 420,000 "essential" employees are working without pay, while another 380,000 have been ordered to stay home, according to calculations provided to CNBC by Paul Light, a professor of public service at New York University.

In some cases, the furloughs have forced government employees to tap into their savings, rely on credit cards or crowdsource funds to make ends meet.

Government workers are far from alone in feeling stressed about not getting paid. Nearly 80 percent of American workers (78 percent) say they're living paycheck to paycheck, according to a 2017 report by employment website CareerBuilder. Women are particularly vulnerable: 81 percent of them report living paycheck to paycheck, compared with 75 percent of men.

They just figured that out? My guess actually would have been a bit higher.

The other nearly 25% are politicians who still get their check. They voted for that.

Well said.

Who wants to volunteer to fix the flaws? I am still kind of sick that experian (or which one of the big three) was not shutdown when almost all important data (ssn’s especially) was breached.

This world is weird.
