It the real time to Divide America trough Russia and China
The pay of more than 800,000 US federal workers may be jeopardized as the White House is warning about a government shutdown by the next week.
The workers could also be told to stay home, The Washington Post reported on Tuesday, while there is no law that would guarantee their pay if they are sacked.
In addition, more than 20 million other employees regarded essential by the government including the active military personnel might not get paid on time, even though they would be still entitled to their salaries, the report said.
If the shutdown continues for more than 2 weeks, these employees would work without getting paid for a time, it added.
The White House warned federal agencies to prepare for a shutdown as lawmakers wrangled over a budget deadline.
The fiscal year ends in within a week, but Congress remains divided over spending and in particular over Obama’s landmark healthcare law.
