As of last week, I was to start working for my new company in Tempe, Arizona. Unfortunately, due to the government shutdown that took place October 1st, I am now out of work until further notice because my background check did not come through before the shutdown. The worst part is that i am a college student and now have forgone my source of income until further notice. I cannot even look for another job because Arizona is one of the only states that require employers to do background checks on employees! Being a stressed college student is not something I should or anyone for that matter should not deal with.
