Job Fair visitors react to government shutdown
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
After 16 days, Congress and President Obama have ended the government shutdown and avoided a default. The deal to fund the government and raise the debt ceiling is only for a few months. As the latest federal government shutdown went into its third week, some job seekers are weathering it and anxious to see what happens next in Washington. Some also urge Washington to reign in the federal spending like they would in their household.
