This iReport is part of an assignment:
Shutdown over: What next?
BRAC'ed & Broke
Another think about coming here to MD was the locality pay is 4.5% less then it is in NJ so I lost approx. 6k in pay. Also the MD state, county and local taxes are about 4% more than I was paying in NJ. So if you total it up I lose about 8% of my pay.
OK now sequestration happens and I get administratively furloughed so I lose 20% of my pay for 4 pay periods and now the government shutdown, what else will come next pestilence?? If this shutdown continues for more then 2 weeks I will be filing for food stamps. This is ridiculous the politicians need to realize they work for the people and not themselves. All Rep's & Dem's are acting like spoiled children and this needs to STOP!! We look like weak fools to the rest of the world.
So I came to work for the government and pretty much lost my financial life
