Next shutdown, federal workers shouldn’t be so reasonable
Next time, they should redistribute the pain. That’s an expression Martin Luther King Jr. used he credited Jesse Jackson in the 1968 Memphis sanitation workers strike as he urged boycotts and other forms of economic coercion in support of the strikers. Those men had been suffering alone, he said. Now, let the whole town feel what they were going through. Redistribute the pain. As the 35-day federal government shutdown over President Donald Trump’s demand for a $5.7 billion monument to white supremacy ends and the threat of a new one looms, maybe that should be the motto of 800,000 federal workers. The impact of the last shutdown, after all, was largely borne by them and their families. Yes, food stamp recipients worried about not receiving their benefits and tourists found national parks closed.
