Shutdown over: What next?
'I was working two part-time jobs and was recently laid off of one; the other is photography and it is seasonal. With people out of work now, my business has come to a stop. My husband who works on the Hill was then furloughed on Monday by the government. We feel like we have had a double whammy. We have two young children to support and are very worried on the financial strain that this will cause. My husband was the bread winner in the family, and we were already living paycheck to paycheck. Now we just don’t know what we are going to do. We really hope and pray that the government will come to some kind of agreement soon so my husband can go back to work.'
